Low-rise Residential New Construction Program (PON 3717)

Due Date:  Continuous


The Low-rise Residential New Construction Program (LR NCP) offers technical support and incentives to developers of single family, low-rise multi-unit, and low-rise multifamily new construction, as well as gut rehabilitation projects.  The goal is to increase awareness of, and demand for, advanced clean energy solutions while strengthening the capacity of clean energy professionals to deliver design and construction services.  The multi-tiered incentive structure is intended to promote increased levels of performance, up to and including net zero energy performance. Participants are encouraged to identify replicable and integrated design solutions that optimize costs and utilize financing strategies that help manage risks.  Use of solar electric generation and other renewable energy systems, as well ground-source heat pumps and other innovative technologies, are encouraged to achieve the higher performance targets. The Applicant is expected to hire a Home Energy Rater to act as the primary resource for their participation.  LR NCP significantly but not exclusively targets the Low- to Moderate-Income (LMI) housing sector, supporting New York State and New York City housing agencies as well as other funding authorities in their efforts to secure efficient, durable, resilient and healthy housing.  LR NCP is closely aligned with NYSERDA’s Multifamily New Construction Program (MF NCP) to more seamlessly support the higher performance multifamily new construction market.
