Green Project Funding

Looking for ways to fund or research your green building project in the New York Upstate Chapter?

American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009

The funding provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 offer a tremendous opportunity for states and localities to green existing buildings that might otherwise remain inefficient and unhealthy and at the same time to create green jobs.  USGBC's LEED Green Building Rating Systems offer highly-respected and nationally-accepted benchmarks for best practicies that can optimize funding spent on buildings and communities.  USGBC has prepared this chart to give a brief overview of some of the provisions in the bill and a sampling of resources that can be used to ensure that sustainable buildings and communities remain a priority in the way economic recovery funds are spent.
