    A house that is LEED certified should use resources in a more efficient way, thus reducing cost to the owner for water, electricity, heating, etc. They may also provide a healthier environment, reducing medical costs.

    In addition to the “passive” incentives that LEED certification offers, there are often also direct incentives for getting LEED certification.

    LEED certification incentives can change, not just by state, but also by city and county. I would suggest using the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency on-line at http://www.dsireusa.org/. This may give you some information about what incentives would apply to your region.

    Also, the government has a document outlining government LEED incentives. This also is broken down to specific regions in each state, so you may want to look at it as well. It can be found at this link: https://www.usgbc.org/ShowFile.aspx?DocumentID=2021
