The Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP) is a nonprofit advocacy organization established in 1994 as a joint initiative of the Alliance to Save Energy, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, and the Natural Resources Defense Council. On June 1, 2014, BCAP “graduated” from its status as a program of the Alliance and became an independent organization and a proud project of the Trust for Conservation Innovation. BCAP is headquartered in Washington, DC. We have satellite staff in Albany, NY and Toledo, OH.
BCAP strives to be the premier resource for energy code support, coordination, technical assistance, news and information. Our mission is to reduce the energy consumed in the construction and operations of buildings by working with national, state, and local governments and other stakeholders to promote the adoption and implementation of building codes and standards
BCAP receives funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, foundations, the U.S. EPA, and states through SEP grant projects.
