City offers Bucks for Buildings

The city of Portland has received a grant to subsidize small businesses and nonprofits that add insulation and other energy efficiency improvements to their facilities.

The $300,000 fund, to be available on a first-time, first-served basis, will provide rebates of up to 50 percent of costs, or 75 percent for nonprofit groups.

Funding for the “Bucks for Buildings” program came from a federal grant.
