Would create the Environmental Justice Community Resilience Hubs Program (Program), and would fund the Program by redirecting 5 percent of electrical corporation allocated allowance auction proceeds received under the Cap-and-Trade Program from annual climate credits that are currently provided to residential ratepayers. The Program would fund competitive grants run by electrical corporations and administered by a third-party administrator for owners of critical community institutions for building upgrade projects. Made a 2-Year bill in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
