Federal Climate Funds for Communities
Green New Deal Network
This page contains memos and report relevant to state and local organizing and implementation regarding recent US federal climate laws. After years of campaigning and compromise, the US now has 3 major federal investment packages signed into law - the Inflation Reduction Act (2022), the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (2021), and the American Rescue Plan Act (2021) as well as Federal commitments to environmental justice through the Justice 40 Initiative. Now, the key is implementation - letting communities decide how these funds will be used and building power at the state level to get the funds to communities. Memos on this page include: "Inflation Reduction Act: Wins & Harms," "How IRA money flows to communities," and "What does the Inflation Reduction Act mean for organizers at the state level?" among others.
