The state home builder associations of Connecticut, Delaware, Michigan, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York and Oklahoma have affiliated with the NAHB National Green Building Program, the association’s Chairman Sandy Dunn announced.

“I'm delighted to welcome the home builders in these seven states to the certification services offered through NAHBGreen,” said Dunn, a homebuilder in Point Pleasant, W. Va. “Our members are looking for an authentic, cost-effective and voluntary way to offer certified green homes to their clients.”

The new affiliation will make it even easier for homebuyers in those states to find green homes and provide members additional technical training, education and business opportunities.

In addition to serving as a gateway to green home certification services, NAHBGreen-affiliated programs offer green building seminars and classes to their members, including the Green Building for Building Professionals class required for those seeking the Certified Green Professional educational designation.
Buyers seeking homes built with resource-efficient features can call their local home building associations to find green builders in their area-or meet them at the Parades of Homes, Green Home Expos and other consumer events sponsored by affiliated programs.
