The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is providing billions of dollars to advance local government climate action planning. It is a massive opportunity for American communities to take unprecedented action. In a recent blog post, we outline how the Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) funding stream of the IRA can catalyze climate action planning for states, metro-regions, Tribes, and Territories.
Demystifying the CPRG
For communities without a climate action plan, preparing the budget and workplan necessary to apply for CPRG funding can feel daunting.
To help demystify the CPRG, SSG drew on decades of our community climate action planning experience to create the Climate Action Planning Quickstart Guide for States & Metro Regions. The Quickstart Guide explains the essential CPRG components and provides guidance on how to develop an effective, implementation-ready climate action plan.
