Summary

In June 2011, the City of Indianapolis announced the availability of the EcoHouse Project, an energy-efficiency loan program for medium- and low-income homeowners in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Office of Sustainability selected the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership to administer the program.

In order to qualify, homeowners must have lived in the same home for the past 12 months and have a credit score of at least 580. In addition, homeowners must have an income at or below 120% of the HUD's published area median income. Loans are available for a variety of energy-efficiency upgrades and are capped at $15,000. Apply online at EcoHouse.inhp.org, or contact the program administrators using the contact information below.

This program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) BetterBuildings Program. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
