The Sponsors of Mass Save® are excited officially to announce the launch of a Passive House Incentive program for multi-family high-rise buildings. Incentives and assistance to support the construction of multi-family high-rise buildings (four stories or higher) with deep energy savings.

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.

Incentives for smaller projects of less than 4 stories are still forthcoming. 

For information on program application and qualification details, please email multifhr@icf.com
