On September 14, 2016, Governor Brown signed AB 2722, which creates the Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Program, a grant program administered by the Strategic Growth Council, for broad-based greenhouse gas emission reduction projects that provide local economic, environmental and health benefits to disadvantaged communities.
The Strategic Growth Council invited review of the first phase of Guidelines implementing Assembly Bill 2722 (Burke, 2016). This proposed action was the first of several to implement the Program. Specifically, this action specifies a portion of total Program funds for applications from specific geographic locations.
The Council will establish Program Guidelines and selection criteria in a future rulemaking.
The following documents describe the proposed action:
- Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
- Proposed Regulation
- Initial Statement of Reasons
- AB 2722: Transformative Climate Communities Program
The Council conducted a public hearing on the proposal on November 7, 2016, in the City of Fresno. Details on the hearing and a video are posted below for review.
