In 2016, Comptroller Darlene Green introduced Green HELP, a program to help St. Louis homeowners save money and make their homes more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.
Green HELP was financed through President Obama's Better Buildings Initiative. It was a home loan program with a low, 2.1 percent interest rate for City of St. Louis residents to make energy efficiency improvements to their homes. Green HELP loans were made through the Office of the Comptroller, with $2 million that was set aside specifically to help homeowners reduce energy bills.
Eligible residents were allowed to borrow any amount up to $15,000, and the loans did not require appraisals or expensive loan closings. Funds were available on a first-come, first-served basis, and the program concluded December 31, 2018.
