The OR-MEP webinar on May 18, 2023, reviewed the new enrollment process and program manual updates planned to go into effect in June. Read this blog post for a recap of program changes, a link to the draft Open Enrollment framework, and access to the webinar recording and slide deck, and FAQs.
Open Enrollment Application Process
Due to the increased demand for the program, OR-MEP will launch a new funding prioritization and enrollment process called OR-MEP Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment moves away from the previous “first come, first served” approach to one that is now competitive with new DEI–focused criteria to prioritize projects with the highest need.
Participation & Eligibility Requirements
- Expanded eligibility to duplex, triplex, and quadplex projects where five or more buildings are on one site.
- Removed requirement that enrollment approval must take place prior to any measure installation.
- Removed requirement to submit invoices at completion.
Measure & Incentive Updates
The program updates remain open for public comment until May 31, 2023. Visit the OHCS website to view the Notice to Proposed Rulemaking and draft program manual. You can also learn more about the Open Enrollment process by reviewing the draft framework document.
