USGBC’s LEED Homes Awards recognize some of the most innovative and transformative LEED-certified residential projects in the world, as well as the teams that worked hard to make them a reality. The awards showcase your projects and shine deserved light on your accomplishments.

The nominations period for the 2020 LEED Homes Awards is April 28–May 21 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Nominate your favorite LEED residential projects certified in 2019. We are looking for outstanding projects that have gone above and beyond to create better lives for those who live in them, that have taken sustainability to the next level or that have supported a better quality of life for the surrounding community.

For the second year, we will open the voting for Project of the Year to the public. In 2019, this category saw over 6,000 votes.
