Next week, I’ll join Representative Nanette Barragán and experts from EPA, the Greenlining Institute, and the Environmental Protection Network to talk about EPA’s Environmental and Climate Justice Community Change Grants.

We’ll discuss how this program invests approximately $2 billion in projects in disadvantaged communities, how to apply for grants and get technical assistance, who is eligible, and more.

I hope to see you online next Monday, February 12 at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET.
