Event Description

Join the Building Performance Association (BPA) and others in the green building and home performance industries on Tuesday, May 25 for a day of meetings with Congress in support of the HOPE for HOMES Act of 2021! This bill would provide $500M to support online training for contractors and $8.4 billion for a residential energy efficiency retrofit program.

Join this conference to tell lawmakers how this bill will benefit your business.

The HOPE for HOMES Act of 2020 could:

  • Create rebates for homeowners to invest in energy efficiency improvements, including:
    • $800 to add insulation to their home,
    • $1,500 for adding insulation and replacing part of their HVAC system,
    • $2,000 for retrofits that lead to savings of 20-40% of whole-house energy use,
    • $4,000 for retrofits that save at least 40% of whole-house energy use, and
    • Doubling the rebate amount for moderate income families.
  • Authorize $500 million in grants to help develop training curriculums and assist companies in providing financial incentives to contractors to undertake online training to advance their capabilities to efficiently retrofit homes.
  • Provide $1,000 per employee rehired, up to $10,000 total, to contracting companies willing to cover the costs of training and technology upgrades needed to achieve online learning.
  • Provide a $1,000 stipend to contractors who complete the HOPE Training and are prepared to advance their careers and help homeowners with home retrofits.

What does all of this translate to in the real world?

  • Jobs Creation and Support

  • Energy and Financial Savings

  • Environmental & Health Benefits

  • Long-term Recovery


All meetings on Tuesday, May 25 will be held via Zoom.
