This project aimed to provide recommendations for cities to implement equitable home energy retrofit programs. As cities increase home energy retrofits, the program outcomes must be fair and just for rental residents, property owners and managers while reducing GHG emissions. We identified various retrofit packages that can reduce emissions and those with the highest impact, especially for equity-deserving groups. Strong laws, transition housing and incentives can ensure equitable program outcomes.
