Transformative Climate Communities

As California seeks to achieve its climate goals, it is critical that those most impacted by pollution share the benefits of this transformation.

The TCC Program funds development and infrastructure projects that achieve major environmental, health, and economic benefits in California’s most disadvantaged communities.

Funded by California’s Cap-and-Trade Program, TCC empowers the communities most impacted by pollution to choose their own goals, strategies, and projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollution – all with data-driven milestones and measurable outcomes. See more here.
