I can hardly believe it, but my last day at ClimatePlan has finally arrived. CRAZY, right?!
Over the course of this transition, I’ve watched as ClimatePlan staff, partners and steering committee members have stepped up, jumped in and taken ownership. It has been an inspiration to watch the leadership flourishing all across our network, more than ever, these last six months. I have *SO* worked myself out of a job!
August workshops are building on the huge victory advocates scored in June, when the Governor and Legislature reached a landmark budget agreement for the investment of billions of dollars in cap and trade revenue for this year, as well as a framework for future years. This created the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program. The program enables the Strategic Growth Council to use $130 million from 2014-15 cap and trade proceeds to support affordable housing, land-use, and transportation efforts that reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.
