Certification and performance incentives are available to assist builders and developers in achieving Passive House certification certification through either PHIUS or PHI standards as well as to those that pre-certify and build to similar high-efficiency levels. Additional funds are available for feasibility studies of projects and for energy modeling services.

Update: As of February, 2020, this program has been updated to include all multifamily buildings with five or more units.
