ClimatePlan is a coalition of diverse organizations in California, hosted by TransForm, that works to make the state’s land use and transportation networks more climate-friendly, healthy, and equitable. This grant will support ClimatePlan’s goal of achieving stronger carbon reduction targets by the Air Resources Board during the next round of Sustainable Community Strategies, in mid-2017, in five metropolitan regions: the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley, Los Angeles, and San Diego. These targets should be consistent with the long-term greenhouse gas reduction targets adopted by the state last year, 40 percent by 2030. ClimatePlan’s strategies involve strong participation from all local and regional statewide groups.

Grants to this Grantee
for the ClimatePlan and World Class Transit Regional programs
TransForm promotes clean transportation policies. The purpose of this grant is to renew support for ClimatePlan, a TransForm program which coordinates efforts to reduce emissions from transportation and land-use planning. TransForm’s focus for next year is the development and adoption of strong transit and land-use plans in the San Joaquin Valley and Bay Area. China Sustainable Cities Special Initiative
for general operating support
TransFormCA works to create world-class public transportation and walkable communities in the Bay Area. With this renewed general support, TransFormCA would continue to work in its three main programs: Safe Routes to School: for children walking and biking to school; Bus Rapic Transit, effective public transportation specially for low income communities, and GreenTrip, a program to design better homes for people of all incomes near transit. Ultimately, TransFormCA’s programs would ensure the reduction of vehicle emissions contributing to climate change and air pollution in the Bay Area.
