A message from the Massachusetts Climate Action Network
Ask your legislators to prioritize equitable building decarbonization by cosponsoring SD.500 and HD.776 An Act Establishing A Zero Carbon Renovation Fund.
The Zero Carbon Renovation Fund is a bold proposal to allocate $300 million from the remaining American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to establish a Zero Carbon Renovation Fund that will jumpstart the market for zero carbon renovations in existing buildings in Massachusetts. The ZCRF will advance equitable building decarbonization by prioritizing affordable housing, public housing, schools, BIPOC and women businesses, and buildings located in Environmental Justice communities.
By prioritizing the most vulnerable populations among us, the ZCRF will reduce emissions, improve climate resiliency, lower energy costs, and improve the overall health of communities most in need.
This fund will also transform the marketplace and jumpstart zero carbon renovation projects across the Commonwealth by driving down costs and providing relief for consumers over the long term as we transition away from our reliance on fossil fuels.
