Environment > Energy

These grants support efforts in New York, and in some cases on a regional/national level, that decrease reliance on fossil fuels, particularly natural gas, or that help shift New York State's energy needs away from conventional fossil fuel sources and toward a clean energy system that is accessible, affordable and protective of citizens' health.
