Gov. Maura Healey announced the first recipients of a multi-million dollar grant aimed toward financing green energy upgrades in 10 affordable housing units across the commonwealth.
The grant awarded $27 million to seven organizations in Massachusetts that will help affordable housing units upgrade their equipment, insulation and other features to lower energy demand and decarbonize homes, according to the governor’s office.
The statewide funds are part of the Affordable Housing Deep Energy Retrofit Grant Program. The program, according to the governor’s office, includes benefits such as buildings with improved air quality and lower energy costs.
