Virginia's RGGI Funds are Crucial to Its fight Against Climate Change and For Climate Justice

Virginia’s pollution reduction program is helping drive down greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality and public health. It has generated $228 million 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.
