Conference Details

California’s $48 billion Climate Commitment and Federal Inflation Reduction Act and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act represent a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in clean energy, transit, affordable housing, good-paying jobs, and the reduction of legacy pollution in underserved communities.

Given this historic opportunity, how do we invest unprecedented public funding for equitable and sustained transformation in underserved communities?

The SGC Catalyst Conference, hosted by the California Strategic Growth Council, is an inaugural event focused on building partnerships and solutions to implement the Justice40 Initiative in California and beyond. Conference outcomes include:

  1. Exploring new frameworks for community development that are responsive to the Justice40 initiative and other equity considerations, climate impacts, and availability of public and private funding
  2. Identifying obstacles, opportunities, and solutions to build readiness and catalyze implementation within underserved communities.
  3. Build peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities, focused on developing the partnerships necessary to implement state and federal climate equity funding
