    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Center for American Progress conducts research and public education on a wide range of domestic policy issues, including health care, public education reform, economic mobility, housing and energy. It will use this grant to develop and publish a research paper documenting the key features, innovations and challenges of some two dozen programs that provide financing for the "retrofitting" of multi-family, rental housing nationwide. The project's goal is to help policymakers and leaders in the housing and energy fields increase the availability of workable financing programs to help more building owners improve their properties for long-term energy efficiency and affordability.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Center for American Progress $200,000 between 2003 and 2014.
