Clean Energy Group submitted comments in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Request for Information (RFI) seeking public comment on core design aspects of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF). The GGRF will provide $27 billion to advance the development of zero-emission technologies and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with $15 billion in competitive grants to advance projects benefiting low-income and disadvantaged communities. CEG’s comments focus on the importance of providing technical assistance funding support through the GGRF, particularly in support of projects being developed by under-resourced organizations and in service of historically marginalized communities. Facilitating access to technical expertise will help to ensure that GGRF resources are equitably distributed and that projects supported through the GGRF are designed to provide the maximum benefit to low-income and disadvantaged communities.
