Resilient and Efficient Codes Implementation

Federal Agency


Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE)


To enable sustained, cost-effective implementation of updated building energy codes to save customers money on their energy bills.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Relevant state agencies (including territorial agencies) or tribal governments are eligible to apply. Examples include state building code agencies, state energy offices, territorial energy offices, or tribal energy offices. In addition, partnerships are eligible entities, which must include a state agency, and one or more entities like local building code agencies, codes and standards developers, associations of builders and design and construction professionals, local and utility energy efficiency programs, consumer, and energy efficiency and environmental advocates, etc. This FOA includes one topic area broadly focused on the cost-effective implementation of updated energy codes.

Decarbonization Considerations

Municipalities can implement stricter energy codes to reduce emissions from buildings, one of the single largest contributing sectors to climate change. Codes can regulate electric/gas systems, appliances, etc.

Equity Considerations

Updating building energy codes can enhance energy efficiency, reduce energy burdens, address split incentive situations between tenants and landlords, and make everyday living expenses more affordable for all. Energy codes can reduce the amount of gas burned in the home, a health hazard that disproportionately affects underserved groups. Codes can also address update baseline standards that particular impact structures in underserved communities.Learn more here:

Helpful Tips

Applicants must include a relevant state or tribal government agency. DOE will prioritize teams that include strategic partnerships, such as those with local building code agencies, codes and standards developers, or associations of builders and design and construction professionals.
