Letters to Regulators: EPA Should Continue to Develop Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Guidance that Delivers Tangible Benefits to Low-Income and Disadvantaged Communities Across the Country

May 12, 2023

Americans for Financial Reform Education Fund (AFREF) submitted an environmental justice advocates comment letter signed by Public Citizen and WE ACT for Environmental Justice to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on its Implementation Framework for the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund

The Implementation Framework charts a path towards an environmental and climate justice-aligned national climate bank network that can support and uplift the role of low-income and disadvantaged communities in the climate economic transition. 

The letter urges the EPA to:

  • strengthen the language throughout this Framework for the notice of funding opportunity;
  • prioritize climate mitigation and environmental justice benefits in future guidance and;
  • continue the practice of open dialogue and feedback until the last Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund dollar is awarded and beyond.
