Project Summary

This interdisciplinary project addresses two research and deployment needs described in the California 2015 Climate Change Research Plan: (1) it will help the most vulnerable—e.g., low-income individuals and families, individuals who are incarcerated or have been incarcerated, individuals with disabilities, children, youth and young adults, seniors, immigrants, and refugees—in disadvantaged communities (DACs) to better weather the increasingly extreme heat brought on by climate change, and (2) it will help California's power sector reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It will operate in two of Fresno’s DACs.
