The application period for the 2022 Renewable and Energy Efficiency Financing Grant Program is now open to OFN members!
Thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, OFN is providing up to a total of $5.25 million in grants to OFN members focused on renewable and energy efficiency financing over four years, 2019-2022.
Between 2019 and 2020, OFN awarded a total of $2,350,000 to 26 member CDFIs. In 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, OFN paused the Renewable and Energy Efficiency Financing Grant Program. The complete awardee list is available on the OFN website.
The 2022 round of the Renewable and Energy Efficiency Financing Grant Program will offer between 30-40 grants − ranging from $50,000 to $200,000 per award – to provide lending capital and/or loan loss reserves to OFN members for renewable and energy efficiency financing. A total of up to $2,900,000 in grants will be made in this final round.
Qualifying CDFIs are invited to apply online by 11:59 PM ET on July 29, 2022. Please visit the Renewable and Energy Efficiency Financing Grant Program webpage to access the grant application and complete guidelines.
