Energy Outreach Colora​do's Affordable Housing Weatherization Program

The Energy Outreach Colorado affordable housing weatherization program serves affordable multifamily housing properties across the state that are 5 or more units, centrally heated, and where 67% of the population are at or below 200% federal poverty level (FPL).

The application opens in April and generally stays open one month. Projects for the upcoming funding cycle are selected in July and chosen based on income qualification, age of the heating system, cost per square foot of heating the building, and potential for energy savings. If your property is selected, it will undergo an extensive energy audit to identify potential energy conservation measures, which must meet a cost-benefit ratio. Once energy conservation measures are identified, contractors submit proposals to complete the work. EOC selects contractors based on price, system presented, and schedule. Once a contract is signed, EOC manages the contractors and the implementation of measures.

What is the benefit to you? Most multi-family residences have a huge potential for energy savings through energy efficiency upgrades. The time and resources that participants invest in this program are typically recovered through:
  • Capital improvements
  • Reductions in utility, operating and maintenance costs
  • Increased tenant satisfaction, health and safety, and energy saving practices
Grant funding is provided through organizations and agencies, including the Colorado Energy Office and utility companies operating in Colorado.

Applications open April 1, 2015.
