Multifamily buildings permitted prior to July 1, 2021 may continue to certify through the MFHR or Certified Homes program, based on the eligibility requirements of those programs. Projects that will be certified through the MFHR program must submit their MFHR Project Application to a Multifamily Review Organization (MRO) before January 1, 2021.Contact the ENERGY STAR team to receive a recorded copy of the webinar.
While ENERGY STAR certification for new construction multifamily buildings was previously allowed through the Certified Homes and MFHR programs, the ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction (MFNC) program is now required for any multifamily building with building permits on or after July 1, 2021.
