As more cities across the country race to set and meet decarbonization policy mandates, there is an increasing need to quickly learn from proven best practices in the affordable housing landscape. With more than $600,000 of incentive funding already committed to energy efficiency upgrades in affordable multifamily housing, the New York State (NYS) Affordable Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program’s (AMEEP) newest Housing Development Corporation – Integrated Physical Needs Assessment (HPD-IPNA) pilot serves as a successful model for other regions. Learn how utility-based programs – combined with engagement from community-based organizations – can address comprehensive retrofit affordability to ensure residents in the most need are prioritized in the transition away from fossil fuels.
- After participating in this session, attendees should be able to:
- Give examples of how New York State utilities address comprehensive retrofit affordability through programs like the HPD-IPNA pilot.
- Illustrate how partnerships with community-based organizations can enhance customer engagement.
- Evaluate how a similar incentive program model could be implemented in their jurisdiction.
