SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), the Energy Innovation Fund Program (EIF) will support innovations in financing and conducting applied research to address primary barriers to the retrofitting of certain multifamily residential properties to be more energy efficient on a cost effective basis. The goals of this NOFA are to: (1) Demonstrate solutions to the primary and longstanding challenges to implementing energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements in existing affordable multifamily properties; (2) leverage private capital and additional public funding to demonstrate “proof of concept” of specific models; and (3) conduct applied research to document and disseminate mainstream, scalable approaches to retrofitting affordable multifamily properties.

The Department published its Energy Innovation Fund—Multifamily Pilot Program (EIF) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) on August 22, 2011 announcing the availability of $25,000,000 out of the Department's FY 2010 budget appropriation, to be utilized for EIF projects and activities. Funding availability for Financing Demonstration Components was capped at $7,500,000 and for Applied Research Demonstration Components, the maximum award amount was $3,000,000 to any applicant.

The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the FY 2010 NOFA. As a result, HUD has funded the twelve applications announced in Appendix A, and in accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is hereby publishing details identifying the recipients of funding awards and their scope of work in Appendix A of this document.
