The U.S. is experiencing a historic energy transformation toward a clean energy economy that affects communities and workers across the country. The Just Transition Fund supports grantees working to diversify and strengthen local economies that had been dependent on coal mining and coal-fired power plant operation. The fund’s goal is to make a material difference in people’s lives, bringing jobs to coal communities and advancing a clean, healthy, prosperous long-term vision for local economies. This planning grant from the Hewlett Foundation will help the fund conduct research and analysis to better understand the needs, community context, effective strategies, and the partners necessary to accelerate and scale up this work.
