income-qualified multifamily


LEAP continues to administer the Department of Energy’s Weatherization Innovation Pilot Program (WIPP), which offers retrofits and tenant education to low‐income multifamily properties. In 2012 weatherization was completed on more than 100 units, leveraging over $900,000 in private investment and providing $100,000 in cash rebates. Another 750 units are already lined up for 2013. These projects also include a tenant education piece to help renters maximize their savings from the upgrades. We currently work with Siemens and Piedmont Development Group working with Johnson Contols to perform the work.
