Multifamily Efficiency Grants Available!


The City of Cincinnati and Duke Energy Ohio are pleased to announce the WarmUp Cincy Matching Grant Program is now accepting applications from owners of multifamily buildings with low-income tenants. The grant is focused on electricity efficiency for buildings, with two or more units, that have tenants at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level and are located within the city limits. It provides matching dollars to building owners energy efficiency investments.

The second round of grant money is available for apartment building capital upgrades in Cincinnati for those buildings with income-eligible tenants. These are 1:1 matching grants of up to $5,000 for a selected list of upgrades. The first round was very successful with awards to 10 building projects across the city.  A grant briefing has been scheduled for May 13th from 3 - 4 PM so building owners can get details on the grant as well as ask questions. 

Building owners can register for that briefing at:
