Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Progressive America Fund/Center for Working Families

New York, New York



The nonprofit, which works through community stakeholders to develop and implement policy reforms, created the concept for the Green Jobs/Green NY Act, a statewide program enacted to reduce costs and emissions through energy-efficiency retrofits. This funding allows the center to participate in the program’s implementation to ensure its success as a driver of the state’s cleaner, greener economy.
