Enterprise offers Energy Efficiency Grants for Low Income Households

Today I joined Enterprise Home Ownership Partners (EHOP) and the Hollywood area Community Redevelopment Agency in announcing the East Hollywood Energy Conservation & Safety Grant Program. The program will provide grants of up to $5,000 for low-income residents of East Hollywood to install energy efficient improvements to their homes.

These energy efficient improvements include tankless water heaters, attic and floor insulation, emergency gas valves, and AC replacements. This program is available for owner-occupied homes only and operates on a first come, first served basis. The first five families to submit a completed application may also be eligible for free installation of an up to 3kWh electric generating solar system to further reduce electricity costs.

To apply for a grant, residents should contact Annette Orozco at Enterprise at aorozco@eneterprisecommunity.org or (213) 833-0053 or Mayra Rivera at the Community Redevelopment Agency at mrivera@cra.lacity.org or (213) 977-1755.
