HPN and Partners Celebrate GGRF Award Announcements

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced awards for the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF). We are pleased that Justice Climate Fund, who Housing Partnership Network (HPN) partnered with on their application, was selected as a Clean Communities Investment Accelerator (CCIA) winner and awarded approximately $1 billion in funding. HPN also congratulates National Clean Investment Fund (NCIF) and CCIA awardees, including members Community Preservation Corporation and Self-Help who along with Calvert led the Climate United NCIF Application, as well as Power Forward (Enterprise Community Partners) and Opportunity Finance Network.

HPN was also excited to learn that that GRID Alternative’s multistate strategy, which HPN was a named partner on, received approximately $250 million under the Solar for All (SFA) competition. HPN also congratulates our close partner, Inclusive Prosperity Capital (IPC), who was also awarded $250M for their multi-state SFA strategy supporting community solar developers. Our collaborative sector represents more than $12 billion of GGRF awards. HPN looks forward to the chance to continue collaboration to benefit the affordable housing sector.

HPN applauds the EPA for supporting our multi-state coalition to complement and fill critical gaps in state and local programs to ensure affordable housing residents can equitably access renewable energy's economic and environmental benefits
