This paper discusses two barriers -- a lack of information and financing -- that stand in the way of multifamily energy retrofits.

Others developed innovative financing strategies in the absence of grant money. These city-led efforts to catalyze local clean energy economic development are important to watch as federal grants sunset, especially in the absence of a comprehensive national energy or climate policy.
