NYSERDA seeks CBOs to assist in conducting outreach for its Green Jobs - Green NY program
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is seeking proposals from Constituency Based Organizations (CBOs) to recruit small businesses, not-for profits, residential and multi-family building owners into the Green Jobs - Green New York program's audit and financing programs as well as encouraging workers to take advantage of their training opportunities. NYSERDA has allocated $6 million in funding for such outreach among 12 geographic areas of New York State.
Green Jobs - Green NY was established through the Green Jobs Green New York Act of 2009 which established goals in promoting energy efficiency, reducing energy consumption/ emissions of greenhouse gases, supporting sustainable community development, and creating job opportunities.
Proposals for the Outreach Program are due by 5pm on January 12, 2011.
