Summary

The Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) provides grants through the Energy Efficient Affordable Housing Construction Program. Under this program, grants are provided to Illinois based non-profit and for-profit housing developers to include energy efficient building practices in the rehab or new construction of affordable housing units. This grant helps offset the incremental cost of going from typical construction to energy-efficient construction. Applications are available on the program web site above.
Projects must be targeted at households at or below 80% Average Median Income (AMI). Pre-application meetings are encouraged. Maximum grant amounts are as follows:

Rehab:</p>

  • Single Family: $4,500/unit
  • Multi-Family Buildings <80 units: $4.50/square foot of living space or $4,500, whichever is less
  • Multi-Family Building >80 units: $4.25/square foot of living space or $4,250, whichever is less

New Construction:

  • Single Family: $4,000/living unit
  • Duplex: $6,500/duplex
  • 3-flat: $7,500/building

  • 6-flat: $11,000/building
  • Multi-Family, <80 units: $4.25/square foot of living space
