Retrofit Ramp-Up Grant Program Provides Opportunity for Historic Buildings
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Public Policy Department of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Department of Energy’ Energy Efficiency Community Block Grant
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy
Website: http://www.nthp.org

The Obama Administration announced on Thursday that 25 states, local governments and nonprofits will split $452 million to retrofit energy inefficient homes and office buildings under its Retrofit Ramp-Up program through the Department of Energy’ Energy Efficiency Community Block Grant (EECBG) program. The retrofit funding will come out of the stimulus package last year that earmarked roughly $80 billion for clean-energy and energy-efficiency projects. The "Retrofit Ramp-Up" funding will help the 25 states, local governments and nonprofits swap out building insulation, windows and lights, among other things. Grantees will offer building owners low- or no-interest loans for retrofits that may be repaid through property tax or utility bills.

The Trust hopes to work with its advocacy partners in at least 20 of the communities that were awarded funding on how to best access this funding to benefit historic and older buildings. The 25 grantees and their grant amounts include: Austin, Texas ($10 million); Boulder County, Colo. ($25 million); Camden, N.J. ($5 million); Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning ($25 million); Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance ($17 million); Greensboro, N.C. ($5 million); Indianapolis ($10 million); Kansas City, Mo. ($20 million); Los Angeles County, Calif. ($30 million); Lowell, Mass. ($5 million); state of Maine ($30 million); state of Maryland ($20 million); state of Michigan ($30 million); state of Missouri ($5 million); Omaha, Neb. ($10 million); state of New Hampshire ($10 million); New York State Research and Development Authority ($40 million); Philadelphia ($25 million); Phoenix ($25 million); Portland, Ore. ($20 million); San Antonio ($10 million); Seattle ($20 million); Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance ($20 million); Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority ($15 million); and Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corp. ($20 million).
