CAP Calls for Climate Bank to Address Climate Disasters

A new article from the Center for American Progress calls for the creation of a National Climate Bank to equitably address climate disasters:

“Congress should also create a National Climate Bank to drive public and private investment into renewable energy, clean transportation, and community resilience projects, particularly in front-line communities such as economically disadvantaged communities, tribal communities, and communities of color…the National Climate Bank is a forward-thinking approach to supporting future-ready infrastructure and access to clean, affordable energy and transportation options to improve community health and safety.”

The article also recommends creating policies specifically designed to reduce pollution in front-line communities, and permanently authorizing the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Relief program. Read the full piece at the Center for American Progress.
