17nov10:00 am11:15 amSustainable Affordable Housing: Financing Strategies for an Equitable Energy Transition

Event Details

Please join representatives from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, and The Community Preservation Corporation for an interactive webinar on financing strategies for preparing New York’s affordable housing to confront climate change.

With nearly half of New York State’s residents earning a low or moderate income, it is essential to identify paths to finance upgrades to affordable housing in support of meeting the climate goals of New York State and New York City.


Presenters will share insights from Sustainable Affordable Housing, a recently published white paper by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and present an affordable housing finance model that demonstrates the need for economic innovation. The program will also focus on recommended solutions for financing the transition of New York’s affordable housing to an all-electric, climate friendly future.

We look forward to an informative and interactive webinar, including a Q&A session and an invitation to engage further as we continue working to chart the way forward to public, private, and education based climate solutions for New York’s affordable housing.
