NINA was thrilled to attend today Connecticut Natural Gas's annual Neighborhood Assistance Act Grant Recipient Ceremony at the Energize CT Center in North Haven. CNG has been a big supporter of NINA's work over the last decade, contributing both to our projects and to our operations, and we are very grateful for their generosity.
Connecticut's NAA program is a terrific one -- it allows non-profits like NINA to apply for funding to support energy-efficient features in affordable housing projects while giving the corporation's that contribute through the program a deduction in their state income tax liability. For NINA and CNG, it's a great pairing, as we apply the funds CNG contributes toward the cost of energy-efficient boilers powered by natural gas and double-paned, low-E windows that help to keep heating costs down.
