Eligibility Requirements

Any project pursuing OHCS Multifamily Energy Program (OR-MEP) incentives must:

  • Be an existing or new construction multifamily property with at least 5 residential units per building,

  • Receive electricity from Pacific Power or Portland General Electric,

  • Be heated by a hard-wired electrical heating system,

  • Meet program affordability requirements, where residents in at least 50% of units are at or below 80% area median income (AMI) and units must remain affordable for at least 10 years

Not sure if you meet the program affordability requirement? For projects that don’t currently have an affordable regulatory agreement in place, view the naturally occurring affordable housing fact sheet for additional opportunities to participate in the program.
