    This product ensures that small businesses have green building choices. Authorized contractors can offer small business customers an affordable option for clean energy, and you know the commitment to these solutions will be transparent, sustainable, and supported by DC Green Bank.

    Open Request for Proposals

    One of the clear strengths of DC Green Bank is our ability to tailor financing for specific needs. We are able to achieve this by engaging with District stakeholders to better understand what financing gaps they are facing and to working with other government and private sector partners to meet that need.

    As part of this process, we welcome proposals at any time through our Open RFP process aimed at addressing financing market gaps and barriers for projects related to clean energy, clean transportation, clean water, stormwater management, energy efficiency, water efficiency, and/or green infrastructure. The Open RFP is specifically designed for larger projects or portfolios of projects, likely over $250,000, but we are open to additional conversations to meet compelling needs.
