  • Small Business & Non-Profit program UPDATE

    The Green Building Retrofit Program is up and running. Small businesses and non-profits located in economically distressed communities across Western New York have historically lacked access to the benefits of energy efficiency assessments and building improvements. Small businesses and non-profit organizations often operate out of older buildings that are victims of commercial district disinvestment, deferred building maintenance, and the legacy costs of environmental contamination. These building related challenges increase the costs of doing business for small commercial firms and non-profit agencies.

    This Incentive Grant program aims to leverage energy efficiency related investments to drive economic development priorities, including local job creation, within distressed communities. Funding will be available to qualified small commercial and non-profit businesses for purposes of making eligible capital improvements that prepare the building for installation of comprehensive energy efficiency retrofit measures through NYSERDA’s Green Jobs-Green NY program.

    Small business owners and operators of non-profits Sheila will be your guide through this process. Below is a sample of how the process works.
