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.
With the CSC pledge as a roadmap, the coordinators will inspire and empower local governments by connecting them with appropriate financial and technical programs, helping them to coordinate with and learn from other communities, offering practical assistance and helping communities to track and report successes and barriers. (Coordinators cannot provide proposal preparation services.)
