Grants to this Grantee
for climate policy and the Struggling Regions Initiative  
This grant supports a program at the Niskanen Center to promote the ambitious use of industrial policy to accelerate decarbonization through a joint initiative between Niskanen’s Climate Policy department and Poverty and Welfare Policy department’s Struggling Regions Initiative. This work will be part of Niskanen’s broader promotion of ambitious climate action. Niskanen’s staff will develop an institutional framework for implementing green industrial policies in the U.S. that can spur economic development, foster innovation in industries critical for decarbonization, streamline processes for agency decision making, improve targeting and monitoring, and develop and maintain skilled labor pools.
