VIRGINIA’S RGGI PROCEEDS ARE ALREADY HELPING FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES
ACROSS THE COMMONWEALTH.
Virginia’s pollution reduction program is already helping drive down greenhouse gas emissions, and improve air quality and public health. But the program also brings in desperately needed revenue to help Virginians. Through just one year, Virginia’s program has generated $228 million that is already being used to create more energy-efficient affordable housing units, help low-income families reduce energy bills, and enhance community flood prevention and protection efforts.
It’s a great start, but we can’t stop now. Virginians are facing real problems and RGGI
funds are a critical part of the solution.
