Infrastructure Act: NASEO Financing Committee Call On Preparing to Establish New Revolving Loan Funds

December 15, 2021, 4:00 - 5:00 PM ET

On December 15, 2021 at 4:00 pm ET, NASEO’s Financing Committee will host the first in a series of discussions around how to prepare for, develop, and operate new State Energy Revolving Loan Funds using allocated funds from the recently-passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Under the IIJA, State Energy Offices will be receiving infusions of capital to develop new Revolving Loan Funds to finance energy efficiency retrofits in the residential and commercial sectors. This discussion will focus on 1) how State Energy Offices may think about using the money available to them for RLFs; 2) how to set up an RLF; and 3) how to work within IIJA guidelines to efficiently lend to customers. Speakers will discuss best practices they have utilized with previous RLFs to maximize their effectiveness with similar infusions of capital in the past.  We encourage you to come prepared with questions, thoughts, and comments for speakers.
