The program oversees the distribution and installation of materials upon the receipt of a signed agreement with the project site. Program field staff will be scheduled to perform the installation of product at the complexes.

The shell measure segment offers incentives for air sealing the shell of multifamily buildings. Incentives will be paid based on the total CFM reduction. Insulation incentives will be based on square footage of attic space. Program field staff will be scheduled to deliver In Unit and Common Area materials and perform the installation of In Unit measures at complexes.
