SCDN Policy Connection: Climate Action Planning - Resources and Funding Opportunities

August 6 at 12:00 pm 1:15 pm

Event Description: 

Climate action plans provide both a structured framework and strategies to help local governments mitigate and adapt to climate change impacts. There are numerous benefits enabled by climate action, including workforce development opportunities, enhanced public health and quality of life, cost savings, and reputable regional leadership. When effectively implemented, climate action plans strengthen community resilience and contribute to a more sustainable, healthy, and vibrant community. However, knowing where, when and how to start can be challenging. 

Join Sustainable Pittsburgh and guest speakers to learn about actionable resources that can help local governments and other organizations take action on climate resilience and adaptation. Speakers will provide expert analysis of new resources available that support climate action, carbon reduction, and social equity, including tools to find funding for clean energy projects, programs available to municipalities to fund projects, and supportive programs that build local climate action capacity.
