To encourage innovation in building, the Michigan Energy Office offers the Energy Star Home Grant Program. New grant applications are usually available by September on the Michigan Energy Office web site. Financial incentives are available to five builders constructing ENERGY STAR rated homes. The selected home builders would be eligible for up to $5,000 based on the size of the house ($2.50/square foot of livable space) plus $3,000 which could be used for marketing and rating expenses. Application forms have to be submitted to the Energy Office, P.O. Box 30221, Lansing, MI 48909, generally by mid-December of the year in question.
