The Keystone HELP Energy Efficiency Loan & Rebate Program is designed to help homeowners improve energy efficiency with special financing and rebates for high-efficiency heating, air conditioning, insulation, windows, doors, geothermal and â€œwhole houseâ€ improvements. Principally supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Treasury Department and the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, the Keystone HELP program is administered by AFC First Financial Corporation, a Pennsylvania energy efficiency lender. Pennsylvania homeowners who own and make qualifying improvements to their one- or two-unit primary residence located in the state and whose combined annual household income does not exceed $150,000 are eligible to apply for loans and rebates under this program. Eligible applicants may receive only one rebate or loan during each fiscal year, but they may apply for additional rebates or loans in future years, as long as the additional projects comply with the published guidelines current at the time of application. Rebates are available only for projects completed after February 23, 2009. Loans are available only for projects initiated after February 23, 2009.
