2021 - Assembly Bill 976 (Rivas, Luz), Resilient Economies and Community Health Pilot Program (Dead)
Would have established the Resilient Economies and Community Health Pilot Program, administered by the Strategic Growth Council (SGC). This bill would have created a grant pilot program for eligible community-based organizations to provide a comprehensive suite of coordinated incentives and services to disadvantaged communities. The pilot program was intended to result in economic savings at the residential household level, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, and improved resiliency to the impacts of climate change. This bill would have also required SGC to submit a report to the Legislature on the program by January 2026. Held on suspense in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
