Led by cities and counties throughout America, the Energy Block Grants Work! campaign is showcasing the contributions that local governments are making to national energy security and economic recovery. The Energy Block Grants Work! campaign is managed by Climate Communities, a national coalition of cities and counties that is educating federal policymakers about the essential role of local governments in addressing climate change and promoting a strong local-federal partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Climate Communities championed the inclusion of EECBG and other clean energy funding in economic recovery legislation and has provided important implementation assistance for these resources through our regular Friday calls. Climate Communities has also worked with Congress to create the Climate Showcase Communities program at EPA and built local government support for the new HUD-DOT-EPA Sustainable Communities initiative, which will distribute more than $150 million in grants to regions and local governments to link transportation, housing and land use.
The toolkit contains a variety of tools you can use to help save Energy Block Grants The kit contains draft documents that you can customize to help promote your community’s successes. These model documents include:
- Press Release for Community Event
