The Bootcamp will help Pennsylvania multifamily affordable housing providers learn about and access IRA programs in the Commonwealth to make affordable housing more energy-efficient and climate resilient. Participants will also receive guidance on how to identify energy-saving and resiliency opportunities in their portfolio.

WHY Participate:
