Climate Smart Communities (CSC) is a New York State program that helps local governments take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to a changing climate. The program offers technical assistance, grants, and recognition for municipal governments that are prioritizing climate action.

The Village of Homer is a Bronze Certified community and we are working toward silver! We are proud to be the first and only municipality in New York whose certification process was entirely led by young people.
