MacArthur Foundation PRI for Energy Efficiency

HDF and CT Green Bank have been granted a $5 million PRI from the MacArthur Foundation.

In 2016, HDF will partner with CT Green Bank and the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to support energy efficiency and clean energy in the affordable multifamily housing sector by support and expanding financing solutions for multifamily properties in Connecticut.

A $5 million program related investment by the MacArthur Foundation will target funding towards three programs:

  • a revolving pre-development energy loan fund to cover the costs of energy opportunity assessments, audits, and project scope definitions.
  • a loan pool to finance the remediation of health and safety measures
  • term financing to bridge gaps and provide a lower weighted average cost of capital for viable projects.
