On May 18, 2009, a notice was published in the Federal Register announcing the availability of program requirements, including eligibility guidelines and application instructions, for the Green Retrofit Program authorized under Title XII of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Under this Program, grants and loans will be made available through HUD's Office of Affordable Housing Preservation (OAHP) to enable eligible multifamily property owners to adopt measures that will create energy and green retrofit investments in the property.

The notice establishing the program requirements is available on the HUD Web site at: http://www.hud.gov/recovery/ and the Federal Register publication can be found at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2009/pdf/E9-11556.pdf.
