Grant Description

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is committed to advancing the Administration?s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, prepare the United States for the impacts of climate change, and lead international efforts to address global climate change. In recognition of the importance of the dual policy goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing climate resilience , the DOE? ? in close collaboration with other Federal agencies ? is launching an initiative to identify and showcase U.S. local and tribal governments that have proven to be climate leaders through pursuing opportunities to advance both of these goals in their communities. In particular, the initiative will select 10-15 U.S. local governments and tribal governments ? or regional collaborations or consortia thereof ? that demonstrate a strong and ongoing commitment to implementing strategies that both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance climate resilience, with a particular emphasis on strategies that further both goals. The DOE-led effort will provide a platform for other Federal agencies to participate in, and give leverage to, the activities of communities that are selected for this initiative. The Climate Action Champions competition will recognize local, regional, and tribal government entities that are leading emissions reductions and climate resilience efforts. DOE will work with other Federal partners to provide recognized entities with additional opportunities for financial and technical assistance, as well as facilitated peer-to-peer networking opportunities and mentorship, to support and advance their greenhouse gas emissions reduction and climate resilience objectives. This initiative will have the added objective of aligning assets at the Federal level and marshalling private, public, and philanthropic dollars at the local level.
