Home Improvements & Going Green

Weatherization Assistance Program

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is a free program provided to low-income Long Islanders, especially the elderly and disabled, to make their homes more energy efficient. An energy audit is conducted by a building analyst, using a variety of tests and tools, to determine the most cost-effective means of reducing energy consumption in the dwelling.

Long Island Green Homes

The Long Island Green Homes initiative is helping Long Islanders improve their homes and use energy more wisely in their everyday lives. Via one-on-one support from an experienced Energy Navigator, Long Island homeowners are connected with government funds and local, certified contractors to receive money saving and energy efficient improvements to their homes. Regardless of income or the municipality in which you live, everyone on Long Island qualifies.

Clean Energy Communities

The Clean Energy Communities (CEC) program allows local governments in New York State to implement clean energy actions, save energy costs, create jobs, and improve the environment. In addition to providing tools, resources, and technical assistance, the program recognizes and rewards leadership for the completion of clean energy projects.
