1. ENROLLMENT FORM - Fill out the 2 page Survey Request. Under no circumstances does this obligate you to anything. It just gives Austin Energy information to see if your community has received any rebate measures in the last 10 years.
2. VERIFICATION - We will get with you to line up an onsite Verification. The Verification will allow us to determine which measures and the rebate amounts you are eligible for.
3. TENANT NOTICE - Prior to the Verification, we will send you a sample Tenant Notice to distribute.
4. CALCULATE REBATE AMOUNTS - Once we have the data collected, we will enter the data into the Austin Energy software which will calculate the rebate amounts.
5. THREE PAGE PAPERWORK REQUIREMENT! - You would think dealing with the City the paperwork would be troublesome. Not in this case! It is only 3 documents!
6. REBATE AMOUNT - If the rebate amount is under $58,000, then work on your community can start rather quickly dependent on how busy we are. If the rebate amount is over $58,000, additional time will be required to process the paperwork. This can take up to 8 weeks......ouch!
7. START - Once the process has been completed, we can schedule a date to begin your work scope.
8. TENANT NOTICES- Not to worry, we put out the tenant notices 48 hours in advance. No need for you to field phone calls from your residents if they are sick, etc....
9. CONGRATULATIONS NOTICE- We leave behind a nice note to thank your resident for participating in the Austin Energy, Energy Efficiency Program.
10. REBATE DOLLARS - All rebate dollars go directly to us (the contractor) for performing the energy efficiency upgrades to your community. There is no out of pocket expenses to you!

The Affordable Housing Program was implemented by Austin Energy on 5/12/2016 as a recommendation from the Low Income Task Force appointed by the Austin City Council. The first projects started in the Fall of 2016. This program funds 100% of the energy efficiency improvements for those rebate measures listed below paid for from the Community Benefit Charge that each ratepayer pays on their electric utility bill from Austin Energy. If a multi-family property is listed in the "Austin Tenant Council's Guide to Affordable Housing", these properties are automatically qualified for the program. The only requirement that will disqualify a community from participating is if a community is posted on the "Repeat Offender List". This is a list of those multi-family properties that have open code violations over an extended period of time. However, if 2 years subside without additional issues, then the community will be eligible or if the community is under new management then the property will be eligible after 3 months. Please click this link to see if your community is listed in the "Austin Tenant Council's Guide to Affordable Housing". (Scroll to Page 11)
