The Green Communities Fund is a revolving loan fund providing low-interest loans to businesses located within the city limits of any city in Georgia. Loans are available for existing as well as new construction. In order to qualify for a loan, the applicant must first receive an energy audit to identify eligible improvements. Rebates are available for energy audits. Energy improvements must either result in a 20% reduction in building energy use, or have a 10-year return on investment.

Loan applications for energy efficient improvements to historic buildings should be compliant with the local Historic Preservation Commission (where present) and meet all local design guidelines.

Details regarding program eligibility, application materials, and application process are available on the program web site.
