Summary

Note: The deadline for new applications has now expired, but it is anticipated that the program will be renewed at some point in the future.

The Green Business Building Pilot Program will provide grants of up to $100,000 per facility for design assistance for private-sector construction projects that meet a minimum LEED level of gold and achieve energy performance of at least 20 percent above the minimum energy code, while achieving minimum standards for best practices in solid waste management. Eligible facilities must have a minimum of 50,000 square feet of conditioned space, and program participants must contribute a minimum of 10 percent of the total project costs associated with the fees for building design services. Hopeful participants must submit a notice of intent to apply no later than November 15, 2006, and must be able to verify that their project funding is in place and can establish an 18-month deadline by which final construction documents will be completed. Final applications for the grant are due January 2, 2007.
