Step 1: Understand the LEED for Homes process
The U.S. Green Building Council developed the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Homes™ and Multifamily Midrise™ Rating Systems to assess and validate residential green building practices.
The LEED for Homes and LEED for Homes Midrise certification process is outlined in this video provided by USGBC.
In addition to meeting the rating system requirements, every LEED Homes and Midrise project is inspected and tested during site inspections by credentialed LEED Homes Green Raters.
