The Energy Efficiency For All (EEFA) Coalition believes any action taken by the Governor’s task force should be rooted in racial justice and racial equity. It is with this grounding that we elevate the importance of supporting efforts to protect and invest in affordable housing that is powered, heated, and cooled by clean energy, and resilient to climate and environmental disasters.
This document goes into detail on the following recommendations for the Task Force to consider when making plans for a Just Recovery in California:
- Support Debt Forgiveness
- Prioritize Energy Efficiency Investments and Building Electrification within Affordable Housing
- Invest in Climate Adaptation and Clean Energy to Build Resilience
AND a new and innovative program proposal with an existing funding source:
- Economic Recovery EJ Multi-Family Resiliency Program
