There are ways to address the impacts of climate change and reduce its effects in your community. Both are important to providing your residents with a high quality of life.

Our funding, resources and training can help you develop a response to climate change that protects your residents, environment and economy. You'll be able to take concrete actions such as assessing flood risks, reducing GHG emissions from waste collection trucks, encouraging residents to use less polluting forms of transportation and creating environmentally sound policies (e.g., no idling).

This five-year, $75 million program will support more than 600 municipalities like yours as you work to update your infrastructure and address climate change.
