Life-changing impact​

The Finger Lakes Climate Fund has funded residential energy efficiency projects for low to moderate income households in the Finger Lakes region since 2011. The fund helps pay for insulation, air sealing, energy efficient heating equipment, and other upgrades to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. The energy efficiency upgrades are carried out by Building Performance Institute accredited contractors using guidelines provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. These home energy efficiency projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support low income families, and help stimulate our local economy.

Awardee Profiles

We are proud to present these profiles of the home owners that have benefited from Finger Lakes
Climate Fund grants. Thanks to the many donors to the Fund, these local families will be less
vulnerable to rising fossil fuel prices and better positioned to remain stable and secure property
owners. Over the long term, everyone benefits – the donors, the homeowners, local energy
contractors, and the community.
