拜登-哈里斯政府宣布为“投资美国之旅”计划的组成部分“环境和气候正义社区变革拨款”提供 20 亿美元资金

华盛顿 — 今天,拜登-哈里斯政府宣布将提供约 20 亿美元的资金,用于支持由社区主导的项目,以部署清洁能源、加强气候复原力,以及构建社区应对环境和气候正义挑战的能力。美国国家环境保护局 (EPA) 社区变革拨款是有史以来直接用于社区环境正义的最大一笔投资,其将推动各方共同努力,为所有人创造一个更健康、更安全和更繁荣的未来。这些资金是拜登总统“投资美国之旅”计划的组成部分,通过总统签署的《降低通货膨胀法案》得以实现,是有史以来在清洁能源和气候行动方面的最大投资。 EPA 局长 Michael S. Regan 表示:“在我的正义之旅中,我听到居民和倡导者呼吁提供资源,为长期以来被忽视和遗忘的社区制定当地解决方案并提供支持。今天,拜登总统承诺投资于长期以来难以获得联邦资金的社区,为此,我们目前正在兑现这些行动呼吁。这笔空前的资金有望将处境不利和负担过重的地区转变为运作良好、具备复原力和繁荣发展的社区,造福今世后代”。 清洁能源创新和实施事务的总统高级顾问 John Podesta 表示:“长期以来,那些首当其冲受到发电厂和工业污染影响的社区一直被大家忽视和遗忘。《降低通货膨胀法案》和拜登总统的 Justice40 计划改变了这一状况,为弱势社区带来了新投资、清洁能源和待遇良好的工作岗位”。 白宫环境质量委员会主席 Brenda Mallory 表示:“在拜登总统的领导下,整个政府正在努力解决长期存在的环境不公正和不公平问题。得益于总统的 ...
