The Green and Resilient Retrofit Program (GRRP)
On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was signed into Law. Section 30002 of Title III of the IRA, (Publ. L. 117-169), titled “Improving Energy Efficiency or Water Efficiency or Climate Resilience of Affordable Housing”, provides funding for direct loans and grants to fund projects that improve energy or water efficiency, enhance indoor air quality or sustainability, implement the use of zero-emission electricity generation, low-emission building materials or processes, energy storage, or building electrification strategies, or address climate resilience, of eligible HUD-assisted multifamily properties. Eligible owners primarily include owners receiving HUD rental assistance under Multifamily Section 8 project-based rental assistance, Section 202 Supportive Housing for Low-Income Elderly, and Section 811 Supportive Housing for Low-Income Persons with Disabilities.
Stakeholders can find the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, published on Congress.gov, here.
