Presenter: James Hartz, Director of Community Development for Tonawanda, New York

The Town of Tonawanda, NY recently completed a Solarize campaign in which they were able to offer low- to moderate-income households the ability to purchase solar panel installations financed through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Eligible households are offered a 0% interest, deferred payment loan to purchase a residential solar installation. Every community in New York State that receives CDBG funding from HUD can utilize these funds to provide energy efficiency improvements, including solar panel installations, to income qualified homeowners. James Hartz, Director of Community Development for the Town of Tonawanda, will present the details of how Tonawanda implemented a program utilizing CDBG funds to expand solar access to low- to moderate-income residents.  To register, visit:  https://nyserda-events.webex.com/mw3100/mywebex/default.do?nomenu=true&siteurl=nyserda-events&service=6&rnd=0.18925687274353475&main_url=https%3A%2F%2Fnyserda-events.webex.com%2Fec3100%2Feventcenter%2Fevent%2FeventAction.do%3FtheAction%3Ddetail%26%26%26EMK%3D4832534b00000004d63e32b6ed4fea01a3c83faf76178964185e0e8d5717d3e4e599371d990b2a06%26siteurl%3Dnyserda-events%26confViewID%3D78896646524533839%26encryptTicket%3DSDJTSwAAAAQNQCUKg5FF3mwTUkgP-my8LBUDYMhGarV_b0EcczmxGw2%26
