Thanks to persistent advocacy of climate activists (we heard that again and again), the Board of Supervisors’ budget allocated $2.6 million in General Fund money to the Department of the Environment (SFE) to begin implementing the Climate Action Plan (CAP). It’s more than twice as much as they allocated to SFE last year - so we’re celebrating the win! The Climate Equity Hub will move out of the planning stage to become reality.
The full Board voted its approval July 19, 2022. Thanks to everyone who called or wrote their Supervisor to tell them that funding equitable climate action is important to their constituents!
