The Problem

Nearly 50,000 of Fort Collins’ low-to-moderate income residents live in energy-inefficient housing that perpetuates health and economic disparities in the community.

The Idea

The City of Fort Collins will align public and private incentives, policy, and capital to catalyze the renovation of rental housing for low and middle-income households, making them more energy efficient and reducing health and economic disparities.

What Mayor Wade Troxell is saying:

We hope to assist low- to moderate-income households with energy efficiency upgrades that ensure all residents have access to programs that improve the health of their homes and their pocketbooks.
