2020 – Assembly Bill 2089 (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 would have resulted 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 2025. Was not heard in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.
