APCHA Grant Program

The APCHA grant program will allow people to lower their carbon emissions, make upgrades to their space adding comfort, and save money on their utility bills.

APCHA property owners are eligible to sign up for one of 60 FREE energy assessments that will make you eligible for a portion of $100,000 in grant-funded energy efficiency improvements we are making available.

Property owners that sign up will receive the following:

  • A professional residential energy efficiency assessment.
  • Professional energy efficiency advising on how to participate and advance on CORE’s Path to Zero program in your home.
  • Guidance and support to apply for a high-impact residential energy efficiency grant in the amount of $1K, $5K, or $10K, based on your assessment. CORE and APCHA have joined forces to provide more incentives for energy efficiency upgrades for people who own a home with APCHA employee housing.

Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the $100,000 in available grant funding is fully allocated. Funding for this program is made possible by the City of Aspen and Pitkin County – Renewable Energy Mitigation Program (REMP) resources, administered by CORE.

Take advantage of this opportunity to make improvements to your home that will also cut costs, cut carbon and advance a cleaner Roaring Fork Valley!

Below are all of the energy efficiency upgrades that can be applied to this program.
