The California Governor’s Strategic Growth Council & Milken Institute present:

Conference Details

The 2024 SGC Catalyst Conference: Progress in Place: From Power Building to Project Implementation is a transformative event to be held on February 1-2, 2024 at the California Natural Resources Building in Sacramento, California. With historic investment through the Inflation Reduction Act and California’s Climate Budget, this year’s event will build on last year’s efforts to promote community and local capacity, while anticipating challenges associated with project development and implementation.

Frontline leaders, researchers, funders, and government partners currently leading this work will convene to learn from one another, prioritize areas of future focus, advance projects, and celebrate transformation already underway. Sessions will reflect both the urgency to make place-based investments that center and support disinvested communities and the speed at which federal and state funds are being deployed.
