How can $369 billion for climate investments benefit your community?

Will historic climate funding help communities that need it most?

Last summer, Congress approved $369 billion to tackle climate change through the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Now it's time for us to voice support for community-driven solutions – especially ones that uplift low-income communities and communities of color.

Climate can't wait, and we can't afford for any money to be left on the table.

Transforming impacted communities into healthy, resilient ones

No one knows what a community needs better than the community itself. That's why Dream.Org is launching our Transformative Communities initiative. We're engaging with 10 priority communities to help unlock federal climate dollars that meet their unique needs. Because putting communities first is the only way to make sure the green transition is equitable.
