As part of the Inflation Reduction Act, the Low-Income Communities Bonus Credit Program was created to promote cost-saving clean energy investments in low-income communities, on Indian land, as part of affordable housing developments, and benefitting low-income households.
The program prioritizes:
- Increased adoption of and access to renewable energy facilities in underserved and environmental justice communities.
- Encouraging new market participants.
- Providing substantial benefits to underserved communities and individuals who have been historically marginalized from economic opportunities and overburdened by environmental impacts.
