leed grant program
The intent of the LEED Grant Program is to provide an economic catalyst for the construction and or redevelopment of sustainable industrial, commercial, mixed-use and multi-unit residential (as defined in Part 3 (Group C) of the National Building Code) buildings and land development in the urban area. This program applies to the Hamilton LEEDING the Way Community Improvement Project Area (as such boundaries are presently defined).
The purpose of the grant program is for the City to share (50/50) the incremental construction cost (to a maximum, as per the Table 1 – Page 3), consultation, energy modeling and certification fees with the applicant to achieve LEED certification. Grants are calculated on the basis of the rating of official certification under the LEED rating system by the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC).
