Washington — The Community Building Code Administration Grant Act of 2008 has passed the House Financial Services Committee. 

The bill, introduced by Rep. Dennis Moore (D-Kan.), would establish a Community Building Code Administration Grant Program, intended to provide awards to local governments for building code administration and enforcement. Specifically, the bill authorizes the program to give out $100 million over a five-year period with awards capped at $1 million per recipient jurisdiction. States and towns also will be required to match a portion of the funds awarded, and the bill outlines eligible uses of funds and selection criteria, with preference offered to governments in financial distress.
