Building Codes Task Force
In March 2022, the White House National Climate Advisor charged the interagency Mitigation Framework Leadership Group (MitFLG) with spearheading the National Initiative to Advance Building Codes (NIABC). The NIABC was established to help communities adopt the latest consensus building and energy codes and standards; improve climate resilience; and reduce energy costs to make the nation more resilient. The MitFLG stood up the Building Codes Task Force (BCTF) in 2022 to lead the NIABC Effort.

The White House National Climate Advisor has charged the interagency Mitigation Framework Leadership Group (MitFLG) with leading the National Initiative to Advance Building Codes (NIABC). The initiative aims to help communities adopt the latest building and energy codes and standards, improve climate resilience, and reduce energy costs. The Building Codes Task Force (BCTF) was established to lead the NIABC effort. The NIABC promotes sustainable changes to protect communities and extends the protections of building codes and energy codes to all U.S. communities. The BCTF submits annual progress reports to the White House and has outlined key priorities to advance the initiative. In June 2022, 10 federal agencies began developing and submitting implementation plans, and in September 2023, the NIABC Best Practices Document was developed. This guidance document is internal to the federal government and was referenced during the Best Practices for Climate Resilient Codes and Standards: Federal Assistance Programs For Non-Federal Buildings White House Summit.
