The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), in partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), will hold a public hearing on June 10, 2022 at the Grace Baptist Church located at 52 S 6th Avenue in Mount Vernon, to receive input on the Draft Disadvantaged Communities Criteria and advance the finalization of the criteria to help guide the implementation of the State’s nation-leading Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.

All New Yorkers are encouraged to provide input on the criteria that will help advance Environmental Justice and guide the climate programs and projects to reduce air pollution and climate-altering greenhouse gas emissions, provide economic development opportunities, and target clean energy and energy efficiency investments.

Individuals attending in-person and virtual hearings and providing comments will be given two minutes to speak. Lengthy statements should be submitted in writing and summarized for oral presentation. If in-person hearings cannot be held due to changing COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, hearings will shift to virtual at the same date and time.

Up to 100 may attend this hearing. Attendees are encouraged to pre-register. There is a metered parking lot accessible across the street from the church. Proof of vaccination is required by the venue. Disposable face masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the event.
