Climate Smart Community Coordinators

Resources to Support Climate Smart Communities

The New York State Climate Smart Community (CSC) coordinators are resources available to support Climate Smart Communities as they work to carry out the CSC Pledge. These six organizations are highly qualified in planning, design, engineering and other disciplines essential to successful local community actions.

The CSC coordinators are part of a pilot program to test the effectiveness of hands-on, technical support and guidance in facilitating selection, development and implementation of successful local climate action programs. During the pilot, four coordinators will work directly with communities in specified geographic areas of the state: Long Island, Mid-Hudson, Capital District and Central New York. One coordinator will provide indirect assistance to communities outside the pilot regions and coordinate regional greenhouse gas inventory efforts, and one coordinator will provide deep expertise in land-use and transportation planning techniques and outcomes to support the work of all coordinators.

For further information about each of the CSC Coordinator's and their programs, including contact details and available support, tools, events, and actions, please click on the links below or on the left side of this page.
