New Construction – Housing (PON 4337)

Due Date:  Continuous


The New Construction – Housing (NC-Housing) program aims to accelerate the design, development and construction of reduced or zero carbon emitting buildings, reducing their energy consumption and per capita carbon emissions while increasing passive survivability and climate change resilience. Through NC-Housing, NYSERDA offers financial incentives and technical support for the new construction or gut rehabilitation 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 multi-tiered incentive structure is intended to promote increased levels of performance, up to and inclusive of net zero energy performance.  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. 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.  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 significantly but not exclusively targets the Low to Moderate Income (LMI) housing sector, supporting New York State’s housing regulatory agencies in their efforts to secure efficient, durable, resilient and healthy housing.
