California Climate Investments is a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged and low-income communities.
To date, the Governor and the Legislature have appropriated nearly $3.4 billion to State agencies implementing California Climate Investments programs and projects. Through 2016, the State has invested $1.2 billion in implemented projects, and approximately 50 percent of the implemented funds ($614 million of $1.2 billion) provide benefits to disadvantaged communities across California. Communities where investments occur are realizing a wide range of benefits, including: increased affordable housing opportunities; improved mobility options through transit, walking, and biking; cleaner air through zero-emission vehicles; job creation, energy and water savings; and greener, more vibrant communities.
Administering state agencies are continuing to invest directly in California residents and communities to build a more sustainable climate future for all, and to further the reach and impact of California Climate Investments.
