Governor Hochul,
let’s advance your affordable climate-friendly homes agenda!

On December 6, 2022, over two hundred organizations from across New York sent a letter to New York Governor Kathy Hochul urging her to make good on her commitment to reach 2 million climate friendly homes by 2030, including 800,000 low and moderate income households. The letter calls on the Governor to marshal the resources and policies needed to get fossil fuels out of buildings while prioritizing the most vulnerable communities for healthy, affordable housing and energy, as well as good, green jobs.

The letter calls for:

  • A major Green Affordable Pre-electrification (GAP) Fund to fix New York’s oldest, unhealthiest housing and remove barriers to weatherization and electrification
  • Funding for weatherization and electrification to improve health and reduce climate pollution
  • Protect New York from rising energy costs and the climate crisis by ending fossil fuel expansion, simplifying existing utility financial assistance programs, and ensuring that New Yorkers don’t spend more than 6% of their monthly income on their energy bills
Energy Square in Kingston, the first net zero, affordable multi-family mixed use building in the Hudson Valley, using geothermal and solar
