Grants starting at $10,000 to New York cities, counties, villages, towns, and boroughs for projects to address climate change mitigation. Funding is designated for assessment, planning, and inventory projects, as well as implementation projects that will advance efforts to address climate change.
Funds are available for two broad categories. The first category supports implementation projects related to climate change adaptation and the reduction of greenhouse gases outside the power sector (transportation, methane, and refrigerants). The second category supports planning projects related to Climate Smart Communities certification actions.
Eligible implementation projects must be climate change adaptation or non-power sector GHG mitigation projects. There are two categories: Adaptation Implementation projects and Mitigation Implementation Projects. For details and eligible projects, see http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/administration_pdf/cscrfa19.pdf=page#5.
Certification projects focus on assessments, inventories, and planning activities that are part of becoming a certified Climate Smart Community. Only certain certification actions are eligible for grant funding. These actions create a foundation from which the community may institutionalize adaptation to climate change and mitigation of GHG emissions. They also provide a basis for future grant applications in the implementation category. For details and eligible projects, see http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/administration_pdf/cscgfs19.pdf=page#1 and http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/administration_pdf/cscrfa19.pdf=page#7.
The following expenses will be eligible for reimbursement:
- Personnel services
- Contractual services
