NYSERDA's  Cleaner Greener Communities (CGC) program provides grant funding to local governments, the private sector, and not-for-profit organizations in order to foster public-private partnerships that will further sustainable growth strategies. The targeted strategies include emissions control, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and low-carbon transportation.

Phase 1 of CGC provides all ten regions of New York State (as defined by the Regional Economic Development Council, REDC) with grant funding to develop their own unique sustainability plans. During phase 2 of CGC, NYSERDA will award $90 million to support the implementation of large-scale projects supporting the sustainable development plans established in Phase 1. 

Funding for phase 2 will be awarded through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process.
