Kresge Expands Green Building Grants Program

The Kresge Foundation, which has promoted the integrated design process for green buildings since 2003, has expanded its grants program. Previously, projects involving renovation, historic preservation, LEED certification, or net-zero energy design were eligible for the grants. Now, buildings designed to meet the criteria of the Living Building Challenge (see


Vol. 15, No. 12) have been added to the list. Eligible projects are awarded $50,000 to $100,000 each to cover planning costs, including charrette facilitation, energy analysis and modeling, site planning, and registration costs for LEED or the Living Building Challenge.
