ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state is making available $16 million to support construction of new energy-efficient housing and to complete similar improvements in existing buildings.

The money is coming through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. The agency says improving energy efficiency is a key part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Clean Energy Standard, which requires 50 percent of the state’s power to come from renewable sources by 2030.

About $8 million will be offered to builders of low-rise housing, including single-family and multi-unit buildings. The other $8 million will be for apartment buildings of four stories or more.

Three-quarters of the entire $16 million is designated for low- to moderate-income housing.
