The NJDEP In Collaboration With Rutgers University Is Hosting Three Upcoming Stakeholder Sessions To Support The Climate Pollution Reduction Grant Program

Through the Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) program, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has received $3 million from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to update and enhance the state’s existing climate action plans.

The NJDEP will utilize these funds to first develop a Priority Climate Action Plan which will be a highly focused, near-term list of measures that can be implemented quickly to help the state achieve its 2030 goal of a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

The PCAP will focus on six priority areas: transportation, buildings, electric generation, food waste, halogenated gases, and natural working lands. NJDEP is also hosting a series of virtual sessions to hear from stakeholders about priorities for the Priority Climate Action Plan.

NJDEP is working with the New Jersey Climate Change Resource Center at Rutgers University to gather input from stakeholders regarding three priority areas: food waste, halogenated gases, and natural working lands. NJDEP invites stakeholders to participate in upcoming topical virtual stakeholder session to provide input on each of these three priority areas.
