WHAT IS THE TRANSFORMATIVE CLIMATE COMMUNITIES PROGRAM
The Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Program is a California Climate Investment (CCI) program administered by the Strategic Growth Council (SGC), and implemented by the Department of Conservation (DOC) and other partnering State agencies. The TCC Program provides funding for projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through the development and implementation of neighborhood-level transformative climate community plans that include multiple, coordinated GHG emissions reduction projects that provide local economic, environmental, and health benefits to disadvantaged communities.
