Massachusetts Governor Announces “Zero Energy Modular Affordable Housing Initiative”
Original Comment:
In 2016, The Baker-Polito Administration announced the Affordable Access to Clean and Efficient Energy Initiative (“Affordable Access Initiative”). Lead by the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), in collaboration with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), the Affordable Access Initiative aims to help low- and moderate-income Massachusetts residents access cost-saving, clean and efficient energy technologies. The Affordable Access Initiative launched with the creation of an inter-secretariat Working Group and a commitment of $10 million in funding from DOER and $5 Million from MassCEC.

Recently, the Baker-Polito Administration announced the results of the Affordable Access Working Group as well as several program opportunities through this Initiative. Those recommendations include the Zero-Energy Modular Affordable Housing Initiative (ZE-MAHI). DOER will fund programs that demonstrate significant potential improvements in the energy performance of manufactured housing in the Commonwealth through the replacement of existing manufactured homes with new modular zero energy housing. This grant opportunity builds on DOER’s successful Pathways to Zero grants for commercial zero-energy buildings.

More details about this grant opportunity can be found here.
