This draft Notice provides a description of Green Building Retrofit Checklist that can be used by communities undertaking residential rehabilitation activities using Community Planning and Development (CPD) funds. The goal of the Checklist is to promote and encourage the use of energy efficiency and green building practices by helping communities to seamlessly incorporate these practices into their residential improvement Community Development Block (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs.
Note: CPD recognizes that not all elements of the checklist will be applicable in all climates and geographies. Because of this, CPD will consider exceptions to these standards based on climate or geography, if a grantee identifies the specific standards that aren’t applicable, including offering alternatives if available, and CPD’s Office of Environment and Energy accepts the grantees request.
