For more information:

New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) has established a new, optional Passive House track for applicants seeking competitive points for Green Building under its August 2015 Request for Proposals for Unified Funding Programs (RFP) to encourage a significant increase in the energy efficiency of New York’s affordable housing stock. This RFP makes funding available through eleven state housing programs. To obtain the competitive points under this track, projects may qualify under either the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS), or the International Passive House Institute (iPHI) programs. HCR will work closely with NYSERDA to monitor the ongoing energy use of projects selected in order to provide valuable data to the market to accelerate the trend toward construction of Passive House certified affordable multifamily buildings.
