State Government Work in Action
New York State Energy Research and Development Authority New York State Energy Code Training, Statewide
IBTS helped the State of New York to reinforce compliance with the NYS Energy Conservation Construction Code using funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. This project was divided into two very distinct parts: the creation of a training program for code enforcement officials on how to inspect for energy code compliance, and the development of a Field Guide to be used by contractors to make educated decisions on energy efficiency projects.
Illinois “Ike” and Midwest CDBG-DR Program, State of Illinois
Following the Hurricane Ike-induced floods of 2008 and three subsequent disaster declarations, the State of Illinois was awarded $193.7 million in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. IBTS disbursed the funding based on guidelines developed by the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity and the program team for three areas: Public Infrastructure, Property Buyout, and Economic Development.
