The Urban Greening Program, part of California Climate Investments, is a statewide grant program that utilizes billions of cap-and-trade dollars to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, strengthen the economy, and improve public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged neighborhoods. California Climate Investment projects include those related to affordable housing, public transportation, environmental restoration, and more. At least 35 percent of these investments are made in disadvantaged and low-income communities. More information on California Climate Investments is available here.
