I am currently a LEED AP but have not worked with LEED for Homes. What would you recommend to get started. Also, do I need to be "Home" accredited to work on a LEED for Homes project?

Richard, you don't need to be LEED AP-H to work on a Homes project, but you do need that accreditation to earn the LEED AP credit under that rating system.

I would further add that it would be in your interest and your client's to do quite a bit of homework; ideally, read both the Rating System and the Reference Guide cover to cover. LEED for Homes is quite a different animal from the other members of the LEED family. You would also do well to settle on a Green Rater soon so that you have someone to go to with your questions.
