"Harlem is a vibrant community, a neighborhood in the truest sense of the word. The Harlem Community Development Corporation and its Weatherization Assistance Team have been leaders within our community, bringing home millions in federal, state and private funding to the village of Harlem. Their work has improved living conditions, addressed environmental health concerns and ultimately saved residents thousands of hard-earned dollars in heating and cooling bills," said Assemblyman Keith Wright, chairman of Harlem CDC.

"I applaud the Harlem Community Development Corporation, Harlem Greenfit Management, our local MBE contractors and the building owners who are working hard to improve environmental sustainability to better the lives of thousands throughout Harlem. Together, we must continue our work to expand these kinds of projects throughout our neighborhoods."

"Projects like these will improve the health of the community, improve the environment, generate savings that help preserve the affordability of housing and create jobs for local workers and savings for residents," said Davenport.

"We need more public and private resources focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in the community so that more buildings, residents and workers can benefit," he said. "This is the way we create value for everyone with the resources and assets that we have in the community."
