This free Webinar will feature a panel of NYS experts who will discuss the many benefits of weatherization – such as reduced energy costs – and provide in-depth case studies.
CPC was recently chosen as an administrator for the State’s Weatherization Assistance Program. With weatherization funds, CPC successfully retrofitted 1,200 units of housing, well ahead of an 800 unit goal. Weatherization dollars were used to enhance scopes and reduce the costs of the building rehabilitation work CPC financed.
The NYS Weatherization Assistance Program is the largest residential energy conservation program in the country. It channels Federal money from the U.S. Departments of Energy and Health and Human Services to the State through NY Homes and Community Renewal (HCR).

In communities that have demonstrated resiliency in facing a major crisis, economic developers have often pointed to the creation of a structure to support the recovery process, and to respond to the vast rebuilding challenges. From Joplin’s 2011 tornado to Southern California after the Northridge earthquake, community and business leaders have found it is important to establish a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for economic development and recovery purposes.
Whether created before or after a crisis, these tax-exempt organizations have played a direct role in guiding community resources, including those from the private sector, towards long-term economic recovery. Learn how the Joplin Chamber of Commerce used its 501c3 foundation to accept private dollars to quickly establish a recovery loan fund (RLF) for local businesses. Hear from a legal expert on the latest trends and issues that arise when applying for this IRS designation.
