The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that the Justice Climate Fund (JCF) has been selected to begin award negotiations for the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) Clean Communities Investment Accelerator (CCIA) program. VEIC is a proud partner in the JCF Coalition and will provide qualified project technical assistance and market development support.

VEIC thanks the Biden Administration and the EPA for selecting the Justice Climate Fund (JCF) to begin award negotiations for the GGRF CCIA program.

These federal investments will help our country meet climate goals and reduce air pollution, advancing a better future for rural and urban families alike, including the communities we serve. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, the investments will also deliver greater economic security, creating better-paying jobs and opportunities for small businesses across America while also fostering financial inclusion via America’s Main Street financial institutions — the very community lenders that have delivered, for decades, financial opportunity, security and prosperity to struggling Americans.

JCF’s network of community lenders serves 281 million Americans — or almost 86% of this nation — and includes more than 1,000 CDFIs across every state in the nation and multiple territories.

VEIC welcomes the opportunity to work through JCF to collaborate with the EPA to bring climate solutions, and their many benefits, to our nation’s communities and homes.
