A Few Steps for Program Participation. Learn about program offerings and how to sign up.


Federally Funded Rebate Programs

As part of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), rebates will be provided through two programs:

  1. Home Efficiency Rebates (HOMES), and
  2. Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR).

Both programs are offered to single-family homes and multifamily buildings. Program rebates vary depending on household income. Where possible, IRA Home Energy Rebates can be stacked with other incentives from Focus on Energy, utility programs, or tax credits.

Home Efficiency Rebates

The Home Efficiency Rebate Program is a whole-home, performance-based program. A home energy assessment and modeling will be required. Rebate amounts are based on how much energy a household is predicted to save by making recommended improvements.

*Contractor sign up and participant income eligibility tools will be ready, but modeled project and retroactive project submissions are expected later summer 2024.

Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates

The Home Electrification and Appliance Rebate Program will provide instant discounts to households installing qualifying equipment to help further electrify their homes.

Expected program launch for contractor equipment purchases and installations is later in 2024.

Focus on Energy Trade Allies

If you are already a Focus on Energy Trade Ally, you will still need to sign up to be an IRA Registered Contractor.* Program requirements are not the same.

*Insulation & Air Sealing contractors and energy assessors must be a Focus on Energy Trade Ally in good standing, before an IRA Registered Contractor application will be approved.

If you aren’t an existing Focus on Energy Trade Ally, you don’t have to sign up first as a Focus on Energy Trade Ally to offer IRA Home Energy Rebates to your customers. However, now is a great time to offer all the rebates to customers you can.
