Low Income Housing Tax Credits & Energy Efficiency in Missouri, 2018

Missouri's 2018 Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) includes requirements for energy efficiency.

Energy Audits/Energy Modeling

If a development contains more than twelve (12) units and involves rehabilitation, applicants are required to conduct pre-development testing and energy audits of existing buildings to identify energy savings opportunities. The minimum standard for energy audits is ASHRAE Level 1. The analysis can be a stand-alone document, or incorporated in either the Physical or Capital Needs Assessment reports provided it is in a separate section by itself, and must be prepared by an assessor/rater certified through the Building Performance Institute (BPI), Residential Energy Services Network Home Energy Ratings Systems (RESNET), or ENERGY STAR. The energy audit will be submitted with the initial application for the project.
