Limited Incentive Offer to Comply With Local Law 97

Get your building in compliance with Local Law 97. Multifamily buildings with five or more units may qualify for financial incentives when making energy efficiency upgrades with an approved participating contractor.

Local Law 97, enacted in 2019 as part of New York City’s Climate Mobilization Act, sets caps on greenhouse gas emissions for most buildings over 25,000 square feet. To help affordable housing buildings comply with Local Law 97, we provide incentives to multifamily buildings that work with approved participating contractors to make energy efficiency upgrades.

Certain affordable multifamily buildings can meet requirements by making upgrades from a list of Prescriptive Energy Conservation Measures, under Article 321.
