Energy Conservation Loans are available through the Connecticut Housing Investment Fund, Inc. (CHIF) to owners of one- to four-family homes who meet established income limits for family size and location. Interest rates vary in accordance with the borrower's family size and income, and the loan may be repaid over 10 years. Single-family homes can receive a 0% interest rate if the family has below a 50% Median Income, or if the loan is for a furnace/boiler that is ENERGY STAR rated.
Loans for large residential properties are available through the Multi-Family Energy Conservation Loan Program. The terms of this loan are similar to loans for single-family dwellings, with a higher principal available on the loan.
Applications for these programs are available from the program web site above. In addition to the application, the borrower must submit copies of the past two years' federal tax returns (with schedules) and a copy of a monthly mortgage statement (or a release of mortgage or deed).
