The Alliance for a Just Rebuilding (AJR) is comprised of over 50 community, faith, labor and environmental organizations in New York City working together to ensure that funds for Hurricane Sandy rebuilding create good jobs, affordable housing and sustainable energy infrastructure, and that vulnerable communities have a greater voice in the planning process. AJR is advocating for funds to support “green, low-cost, non-profit power generation with community ownership in storm-affected neighborhoods” and for reforms that will make the state Public Service Commission “account for equitable economic impacts in allocation of billions in energy infrastructure dollars” including creating “a climate justice fund for investment in low-income communities vulnerable to climate events”. AJR also proposed as part of the recovery plan upgrading public housing with Combined Heat & Power (CHP) and using the savings on energy costs to pay for building repairs.
