RFPs for New Multifamily and Community Small Business Programs
Request for proposals (RFPs) have been issued for the implementation of two new programs for FOCUS ON ENERGY®. The new Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program is intended to provide building owners and tenants with a clearer path to access Focus resources. The new Community Small Business Program will work with community-based organizations and utilities to engage small businesses and provide services and incentives specific to their needs. Selection of program implementers is expected this fall with the program launch in early 2023. More details about the new programs will be available later this year.
