The HOMES rebate program, with a total funding of $4.3 billion, consists of tiered incentives using a measured and modeled energy savings pathway.
- Contractors conducting projects in underserved areas receive an additional $200 per home.
- IRA allows for combining HOMES rebates with programs run by states and local utilities, and with Federal tax credits.
- IRA does not permit combining HOMES rebates with other Federal grant or rebate programs.
- Low-to-moderate income individuals receive additional resources.
Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR)
HEAR, managed by state energy offices, are programs exclusively for low-to-moderate income individuals looking to get away from fossil fuels. These programs focus on replacing old gas powered and inefficient equipment, such as stoves, furnaces, water heaters, etc., and replacing them with more efficient electric powered energy efficient counterparts. This will not only save you money on upgrades but also lower your monthly energy bills.
The total funding under this program is $4.5 Billion, but there are some compliance requirements and restrictions also.
These programs provide rebates for new electric appliances which are available at the point-of-sale but cannot be combined with HOMES Rebates.
The IRA does not prohibit combining this rebate with federal tax credits or state utility rebates, but there are limitations.
There is a $14,000 cap per recipient. 100% of the costs are covered for households with less than 80% of the area’s median income. 50% of the costs are covered for households between 80-150% of the area’s median income. An example of rebate amounts for appliances are provided below in the rebates section.
Training Residential Energy Contractors (TREC)
This state-based program makes $200 million available to state energy offices so that they can train, test, and certify residential energy efficiency and electrification contractors. States are allowed to partner with nonprofits to develop and implement these programs. Contractors and their employees who take part in the training programs will be prepared to bring energy efficient technologies into homes. States can put contractors to work who are trained through this program by connecting them with projects funded by the Department of Energy’s Home Energy Rebate Programs, which provide rebates to eligible residents for retrofits and appliance upgrades that reduce energy use.

Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit (25C)
The 25C tax credit provides homeowners looking to make energy-saving upgrades to their homes with the ability to deduct 30% of the cost of certain home improvements from their taxes increasing the dollar caps. The IRA revamps the 25C tax credit to be annual, allowing claims on your taxes every year pending new improvements.
