Multifamily Housing


Our goal is simple – lower barriers to energy improvements by making the financing of green energy upgrades easy and affordable. We offer financing solutions at every step of the process – from planning to installation to performance monitoring. 

Energy efficiency and clean energy upgrades help owners improve their properties and reduce operating costs. Tenants benefit from increased comfort and a healthier living environment.  From saving money to saving the environment, the benefits of energy efficient buildings are clear. 

Catalyst Construction and Term Loan 

Catalyst finances energy and resiliency improvements in affordable and market-rate multifamily properties. It provides construction and term financing to upgrade buildings, implement health and safety measures, save money, and comply with local building performance requirements. With alternatively secured financing, Catalyst can be used with existing mortgages and other financing that has restrictions on adding new debt. Catalyst Loans can also bridge utility rebates and other incentives, including from the federal Inflation Reduction Act. 

Catalyst Loans can be repaid partially, and in some cases fully, from energy and operating cost savings that result from the improvements.
