NYSERDA is working to fulfill the goals of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act by helping overburdened and underserved communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis benefit from the transition to a clean energy economy – but we can’t do it without the lived experiences and knowledge of the communities that are most affected.
NYSERDA is announcing the release of a Request for Qualifications (RFQL) to establish a Disadvantaged Communities Stakeholder Services Pool as a way for organizations that represent historically marginalized communities to be compensated for their time and expertise when engaging with the Authority around energy issues that matter to our communities.
Once selected, organizations with expertise in various communities may provide input on NYSERDA programs including identifying community barriers to participation, collaborative design of new programs, providing facilitation and translation services, serving on advisory groups or steering committees, and more.
By working with organizations that reflect the diversity of New York State communities, NYSERDA can better understand and address the challenges faced by historically marginalized communities and create solutions for an inclusive clean energy economy. We encourage you to review the RFQL 4922 and apply and/or share it with other organizations in your network.
NYSERDA is conducting an Informational Webinar on July 27, 2022, at 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. ET. At that time, we will provide an overview of the way to submit your proposal, and answer questions. We encourage you to participate.
