Comprehensive awards provide funding to properties with the highest need for climate resilience and utility efficiency upgrades, regardless of prior development or environmental retrofit experience.

HUD expects to make approximately 300 awards with $1.47 billion in funding

Elements awards provide funding for owners to include proven and meaningful climate resilience and utility efficiency measures in projects that are already in the process of a recapitalization transaction. Examples of eligible Elements investments include, but are not limited to, installation of electric HVAC heat pumps, Energy Star windows, fire resistant roofs and clean energy generation systems. HUD expects to make approximately 200 awards with $140 million in funding.
