Implementing green building measures in affordable housing is an important way to reduce costs and improve building performance, helping to preserve New York’s much-needed affordable housing supply. Public agencies and utility companies in New York City offer a diverse array of programs to improve the energy efficiency of affordable housing properties. These programs provide grants, loans, tax credits, and other incentives to facilitate efficiency upgrades at low- or no-cost.
Enterprise Community Partners created this guide to inform affordable multifamily housing owners of available financing programs and help them identify those that would be most appropriate for their property. Note: Enterprise does not administer these programs. All programs are subject to change. Information is current as of March 2017.
