New Haven Climate Justice and Green Jobs Fund

 

Safe Climate - Healthy Neighborhoods

  

Proposal:  Establish a Climate Justice and Green Jobs Fund of $1.1 million that would go annually to staff and other expenses related to clean energy jobs creation, energy efficiency outreach/education/programs (to save families money and create jobs), increased climate education, and transportation improvement (to reduce air pollution and help people get to work/school).  These projects are all related to economic recovery and taking responsibility for the New Haven community's annual $120,000,000 climate debt on 1.2 millions tons of carbon emissions.
