With local elected champions leading the way, we have a historic opportunity to expand publicly-owned renewable energy for cleaner, healthier communities and good jobs. Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, tax-exempt entities like local governments, schools, hospitals, public housing administrators, public utilities, and community organizations can get Direct Pay tax credits when they build renewable energy projects like solar, wind, or electric vehicle charging stations for the first time ever. This is an unprecedented opportunity to build sustainable energy infrastructure, clean up our air and water, and create good green jobs. Join the Local Progress Impact Lab and the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPCC) on May 9th at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT for “Cash for Communities: Leveraging Historic Federal Funds for Racial, Economic, and Climate Justice” to learn more about Direct Pay and hear examples of how cities and counties can seize this opportunity.
