TCC Program Background

The Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Program was established by Assembly Bill 2722 (Burke), which directs the Strategic Growth Council (SGC) to administer $140 million from California’s cap-and-trade revenues for the “development and implementation of neighborhood-level transformative climate community plans that include multiple, coordinated greenhouse gas emission reduction projects that provide local economic, environmental, and health benefits to disadvantaged communities…” The Program will invest $70 million within the city of Fresno, $35 million within the city of Los Angeles, and $35 million in a third community, yet to be determined, within the top 5% of Disadvantaged Communities as identified by CalEnviroScreen 2.0 (http://oehha.ca.gov/calenviroscreen).

Objectives of the Summit

  • Provide an opportunity for public input on the draft guidelines for the program, including eligibility, requirements, the application process and overall program design;
  • Highlight state-wide and national best practices in comprehensive, place-based community investment; and
  • Discuss opportunities for partnership and how best to leverage State investment in combination with public agencies, community-based organizations, foundations, businesses, financial institutions and all interested parties.
