Regional Economic Development and Greenhouse Gas Reduction Program

$12 Million Available - Proposals due July 16, 2012 by 5:00 PM Eastern Time

The Regional Economic Development and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Program (the Program) will award cost-share funding for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and/or carbon abatement projects that address the regional priorities of the Regional Economic Development Councils (REDCs), result in strategic investments, and build the capacity within the region to participate in the State's clean energy economy. Projects must be capable of moving forward within one year, while positioning the region for long-term economic growth and environmental stewardship. The Program will complement other funding available through NYSERDA, but will not supplant funds which are otherwise available from NYSERDA programs. The focus of the Program is on the following end-use sectors: Transportation, Manufacturing and Industrial Process, Buildings, Agriculture, Municipal process, Renewable electric generation, and District Energy. Funds are available in nine Eligible Project Categories - click here to find out more.
