Pass the Climate & Community Investment Act!

Pass the Climate & Community Investment Act!

The Climate and Community Investment Act will fund New York’s transition to a renewable energy economy by making polluters pay for the damage they’re causing our climate and communities. We’ll do this by charging companies that emit greenhouse gas pollution and dangerous air pollution a fee, then turn around and invest that fee in our communities. Our investments will fund:

  • Green jobs;

  • Large scale renewable projects;
  • Grants for community led projects on energy planning, reducing local emissions and increasing climate resiliency;

  • Rebates to help middle and low income families to reduce the burden of energy costs.
