Cap-and-Trade Revenues: The Controversy and Funding Opportunities for Disadvantaged Communities

This event has passed.

California’s controversial cap-and-trade program went into effect this year and is expected to generate tens of billions of dollars in new state revenues over the next decade. EJ and social equity advocates have the unique opportunity to channel a significant amount of these funds to help highly-polluted communities and to ensure the equitable implementation of climate change laws, such as SB 375.

This panel will explore the controversy behind cap-and-trade program and the advocacy efforts at the state and regional levels to maximize benefits to disadvantaged communities. Details and RSVP online.
