If you choose to rebuild or retrofit your damaged home, now may also be a good time to consider sustainability. There are many benefits to building a home with green building principles in mind, such as lower utility bills and improved occupant health. In New York City, residents are eligible for a number of tax incentives and programs from the State and City. New York City Department of Buildings, for instance, offers property tax abatements for owners that install green roofs. Below are some green home building resources and links to incentive opportunities.
