R-Value: Credits, Incentives, Code Enforcement and The Inflation Reduction Act



Kara Saul Rinaldi and Ken Allison discuss the Inflation Reduction Act and the best way for contractors to ensure they can deliver IRA incentives to customers.

The Inflation Reduction Act may have already passed but there are still lots of questions about the credits, incentives and rebates contained within. How will the funds be distributed? Which states will benefit most? What’s the best way for contractors to ensure they can deliver these incentives to customers? Today we hope to answer these questions and more, which is why we’ve brought the foremost expert on the Inflation Reduction Act onto the podcast, Kara Saul Rinaldi.

Kara is the principal and founder of the Anndyl Policy Group and she joins IDI’s Ken Allison in a wide ranging discussion on this important legislation. Kara and her group acted as a vital conduit between legislators in Washington D.C and home builders to make sure that the Inflation Reduction Act provided as much value as possible to contractors.
