Now Available: New Funding for Carbon Neutral Retrofits
New York State is taking the next step toward a carbon neutral future, and your building retrofit projects are needed to help make that happen. Under a $30 million program, RetrofitNY is announcing a second round of funding of $5 million, through PON 4878, for all electric deep energy retrofit pilot projects targeting the affordable housing stock, that will demonstrate a pathway to carbon neutral buildings through replicable whole building solutions.
With the development of replicable whole building solutions, these pilot projects will help pave the way to lower costs and increase the adoption of all electric whole building retrofits in the years ahead. Pilot participants will be able to receive $100,000 in funding for design, and up to $40,000 per dwelling unit for construction.
In order to apply for funding through PON 4878, building owners need to be qualified through Request for Qualifications RFQL 4552. They will then need to partner with a solution provider qualified through RFQL 4553 and providing an all-electric whole building solution comprised of components qualified through RFQL 4551.
If you haven’t taken the necessary steps to get qualified for funding, now is the time to do so. Explore the list of qualified firms for potential partnership opportunities to get started. Take an active role in helping New York act on climate change and lead the development of a regional and national market for carbon neutral retrofits.
