* Affordable housing and low-income housing do not necessarily mean the same thing. In this document, affordable housing refers to all the types of housing that Elevate Energy works with, as follows: Elevate works with a variety of subsidized (including Section 8) and un-subsidized multifamily properties. For non-subsidized housing it targets low-income areas, and building owners certify that the rent is affordable to families at or below 80% of the area median income.
