 AN  ACT  to amend the private housing finance law, in relation to estab-
   lishing the sustainable affordable housing incentive program

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1. The private housing finance law is amended by adding a new
 article 31 to read as follows:
                               ARTICLE XXXI
             SUSTAINABLE AFFORDABLE HOUSING INCENTIVE PROGRAM
 SECTION 1280. STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.
         1281. DEFINITIONS.
         1282. SUSTAINABLE AFFORDABLE HOUSING INCENTIVE PROGRAM.
   § 1280. STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND PURPOSE. THE LEGISLATURE
 FINDS AND DECLARES THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS HAVING  A  SIGNIFICANT  IMPACT
 UPON  OUR  ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH, AND SAFETY AND IT IS NECESSARY TO IMPLE-
 MENT PROGRAMS AND POLICIES THAT IMMEDIATELY REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS  EMIS-
 SIONS.  THE  LEGISLATURE  FURTHER  FINDS  THAT  RESIDENTIAL HOUSING IS A
 SOURCE FOR SUCH EMISSIONS AND WE CAN ONLY ADDRESS CLIMATE  CHANGE  IN  A
 MEANINGFUL  MANNER  IF  WE  CHANGE  OUR  PRACTICES AND BEHAVIORS AS THEY
 RELATE TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF AND IMPROVEMENTS TO SUCH HOUSING, SUCH  AS
 THE  USE  OF ENVIRONMENTALLY-SENSITIVE DESIGN AND THE CONSTRUCTION PRAC-
 TICES AND MATERIALS; THE INSTALLATION OF ENERGY EFFICIENT PRODUCTS;  AND
 ACCESS  TO  RENEWABLE  ENERGY  SOURCES.    ESTABLISHING A NEW PROGRAM TO
 ENCOURAGE AND PUBLICLY SUBSIDIZE MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY PRACTICES
 AND MATERIALS WILL REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM MULTI-UNIT HOUS-
 ING THROUGHOUT NEW YORK STATE AND HELP ADDRESS CLIMATE CHANGE FOR FUTURE
 GENERATIONS.
   § 1281. DEFINITIONS. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS ARTICLE,  THE  FOLLOWING
 TERMS SHALL HAVE THE FOLLOWING MEANINGS:
