New York Weatherization Funding Bolstered by Federal Stimulus Bill

According to the National Community Action Foundation, New York stands to receive approximately $404.23 Million in additional funding for home weatherization activities under the Recovery Act. Weatherization programs have multiple benefits: reducing home energy costs for lower income New Yorkers, improving the environment, providing good jobs and training, and reducing reliance on foreign oil supplies.

What a difference a year makes. See Bush Proposes Elimination of Low Income Home Weatherization Program, Feb. 11, 2008.
