HOPE4HOMES - We Need Your Help

BPA members across the country have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic that has brought home performance contracting to a stand-still. While Congress has passed stimulus funding to ease the burden on small businesses, we are calling on Congress to help provide learning resources to contractors while they are at home AND support homeowners and contractors around the country with a residential retrofit program when contractors are allowed to provide their services again.   

Congress is already compiling proposals for the next stimulus legislation and HOPE4HOMES should be in the mix!

Please join us in signing this letter to congressional leaders reminding them that investing in America’s residential workforce and buildings protects and creates jobs while saving money on utility bills and providing for a sustainable energy future.

Please help us share your voice with members of Congress by adding your name here. We will ensure it gets in the hands of your legislators and their staff.
