New Construction – Housing (PON 4337)

Due Date:  Continuous


The New Construction – Housing (NC-Housing) Program supports the design, development, and construction of carbon neutral buildings, reducing energy consumption and per capita carbon emissions while ensuring the buildings are resilient. Through NC-Housing, NYSERDA offers financial incentives and technical support for the new construction, gut rehabilitation or adaptive re-use of residential and mixed-use buildings, inclusive of single-family homes, multi-unit developments, multifamily buildings, residence halls, dormitories, and congregate living facilities, exclusive of nursing homes. The incentive structure is intended to promote increased levels of performance while encouraging solutions that result in healthy environments for the buildings’ occupants.  NYSERDA intends to support replicable and integrated design solutions focused on cost optimization and financing strategies that reward reductions in cost of construction, operational costs, and perceived risks while strengthening the capacity of clean energy professionals to deliver design and construction services.  Use of solar photovoltaic generation and other renewable energy systems, as well as ground source heat pumps and other innovative technologies, are encouraged. The Applicant is expected to hire a NYSERDA-approved Primary Energy Consultant to act as the primary technical resource for their participation.  NC-Housing supports New York State’s housing regulatory agencies in their efforts to secure efficient, durable, resilient and healthy housing.
