As a result of to regulatory barriers and thin operating margins, affordable rental housing has not been able to finance comprehensive energy efficiency improvements. A promising solution to address these obstacles involves binding lenders, property owners and utilities through repayment programs administered through a utility bill. The Corporation will use this grant to help develop, implement and test an on-bill repayment program to serve the multifamily sector across California.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded California Housing Partnership Corporation $400,000 between 2002 and 2015.
