The Center for NYC Neighborhoods (CNYCN) works with homeowners to help them make their homes safe and energy efficient. If you're a homeowner, the Center may be able to help you access:

  • Home repairs through the City-funded HomeFix program. 
  • A home energy efficiency audit conducted by a licensed contractor. 
  • Energy efficient upgrades such as weatherization, insulation, and heating and cooling system upgrades (examples include hot water heaters, boilers, furnaces, air source heat pumps, and other mechanicals).
  • Funding to help pay for efficiency upgrades and renewable energy like solar.
  • A Community Energy Advisor who can discuss energy efficiency strategies with you. 
  • Funding to help make modifications to your home so you can age in place (examples include accessible shower tubs and support bars, ramps, modifying kitchen cabinets and equipment, widening doorways at entrances or exits to your home, etc).
