BayREN is Redesigning the Single Family Home+ Program

BayREN’s Single Family Home+ program aims to serve moderate-income and harder-to-reach residents in the Bay Area. The program is being redesigned to better achieve the goals of health, comfort, safety, and savings through energy upgrades for these target populations. The new Single Family program will be designed to complement existing programs, and is anticipated to launch in the late fall or winter of 2024.
