Government Offers Incentives For Green Apartments For Rent in Ca

apts california: caliAs a follow up to my article on apartments for rent in Ca I found this and wanted to link to it.

U. S. Housing and Urban Development announced Green Refinance Plus, a program allowing owners of affordable rental housing to refinance into new mortgages which include funding for energy- and  water-saving upgrades, along with other needed property renovations.

“All across the country, owners of affordable housing properties are looking for a way to refinance their mortgages  and to make energy improvements and other needed renovations at the same  time,” said Donovan.  “This program kills two birds with one stone — it  preserves our affordable rental stock and it helps finance upgrades  that will save energy and money over the long haul. We must make the  smart investments in a more energy independent economy.  These  investments will strengthen our economy, create the new industries and  new jobs of the future and reduce our dependence on an ever fluctuating  oil market. ”

California Congressman Pete Stark said, “Today’s  event highlights an exciting new refinancing opportunity for owners of  affordable housing to make energy- and water-saving upgrades.  It’s  appropriate that the Green Refinance Plus program is being unveiled by  Secretary Donovan at the Eden Issei Terrace in Hayward, in the heart of a  community poised to help propel our country’s clean, green energy  economy.”
