First Public Workshop on California’s Approach under U.S. EPA’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant Program

Loading Events

The California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) invite you to participate in the First Public Workshop on California’s Approach under U.S. EPA’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) Program. At this workshop, CalEPA, CARB and several other State agencies will discuss California’s ongoing work under the CPRG Program, in which the State will deliver to U.S. EPA three climate plans over four years. Several State agencies will highlight existing climate plans, actions, and priorities that will greatly inform California’s CPRG deliverables.

Created under the Inflation Reduction Act, U.S. EPA’s CPRG Program offers States, large metropolitan areas, and tribal nations non-competitive funding to create climate plans. The climate actions listed in the first plan will be eligible to compete for $4.6 Billion in federal funding under the second phase of the CPRG Program. Given California’s substantial existing climate plans, such as the 2022 Scoping Plan Update, and the number of climate stakeholders statewide, California’s CPRG workplan focuses on coordination across State and local stakeholders, the public, low-income and disadvantaged communities, and with tribal nations. It aims to maximize greenhouse gas reductions as well as air quality and equity-related benefits.

This is the first public workshop on California’s approach under the CPRG Program. In the Fall, California will host in-person listening sessions to gather more detailed input on specific climate actions to include in CPRG deliverables, particularly those that will be eligible for later implementation funding. This initial workshop is meant to gather interested stakeholders and prepare them to offer more in-depth feedback as California’s CPRG work unfolds.

The workshop agenda and staff presentations will be posted on California’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant Program webpage.

All interested stakeholders are invited to attend.
