Climate Action Plan
The EPA established the Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) to encourage Metro Areas and states to develop Climate Action Plans. These Climate Action Plans will outline actions that will reduce climate pollution (such as CO2) along with estimates on the quantities of pollution reduction.
WestCOG is partnered with MetroCOG in the development of a Metropolitan Climate Action Plan which will include the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Stakeholder support will be critical to develop meaningful climate pollution reduction actions. In addition to our MSA Plan, WestCOG is collaborating with neigboring plans from the Hartford Metro Area, New Haven Metro Area, and the Statewide Plan.
Kick Off Meeting
This webinar will explain EPA’s new Climate Pollution Grant program and its deliverables, including both the planning and implementation phases. The webinar will be hosted and facilitated by the three CT Council of Governments acting as the lead agencies for their respective regions – Capitol Region Council of Governments (Hartford-East Hartford-Middletown MSA), South Central Regional Council of Governments (New Haven-Milford MSA) and MetroCOG (Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk MSA). The State Department of Energy and Environmental (CT DEEP) will also be on hand to discuss related State-level planning efforts.
