The Energy Efficiency and Weatherization of Affordable Housing Grant Program is designed to help lower utility bills for Alachua County residents by creating a fund to improve the energy efficiency of rental units. Participating units can request home upgrades ranging from better attic insulation to more energy-efficient electrical appliances such as stoves and air conditioners. This program is for renters in the unincorporated areas of Alachua County, and the County’s smaller municipalities.
Participants can receive up to $15,000 per rental unit. Participating property owners will be asked to commit to maintaining the unit's affordability for a length of time, depending on their chosen award amount. Participation in the program requires the consent of both the renter and the property owner.
