ULI Receives $150,000 Grant from the John D. and Catherine T. Macarthur Foundation To Support Institute’s Climate Change, Land Use and Energy Initiative

ULI PRESS RELEASE WASHINGTON (September 19, 2012) – The Urban Land Institute (ULI), a global research and education institute dedicated to responsible land use and sustainable community building, has been awarded a $150,000 grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to support ULI’s initiative dedicated to energy-efficient and environmentally conscious real estate practices.

The initiative, called Climate Change, Land Use and Energy (CLUE), is a broad, interdisciplinary dialogue that explores how issues related to climate change are changing real estate practices and reshaping urban markets. While the CLUE initiative encompasses both new and existing buildings, the activities supported by this grant will place a particular emphasis on the financing of energy-efficient retrofits in existing buildings. The grant from the MacArthur Foundation will be leveraged by funding from the ULI Foundation, the institute’s source of philanthropic contributions that support key ULI research, programs and activities.
