The government recognizes that COVID-19 has continued to cause disruptions in supply chains and labour shortages, and it has caused some facilities to be shut down temporarily, resulting in delays to anticipated completion dates of certain energy efficiency projects. Projects under the following CFF Programs may be eligible for an extension to December 31, 2021: Retrofit Program; Process and System Upgrade Program; Residential New Construction Program; and High Performance New Construction Program.
