TBRPC Competes for EPA Funding to Implement the Sunshine State Energy Resilience Coalition Project

Tampa Bay, FL (March 2024) – In a historic partnership that spans several Florida MSAs, the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council is leading an effort to reduce local greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while benefiting low-income neighborhoods.

With over 8.6 million residents, the Sunshine State Energy Resilience Coalition (SSERC) represents almost 40% of Florida’s population. Working together, the 15 counties and 91 cities plan to strategically deploy Federal resources and leverage existing grant funding to maximize the benefits of Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) Program funding.

If funded, the SSERC project could be a holistic approach to addressing climate change by focusing on greenhouse gas reduction measures identified in the Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP)

The project aims to do this by:

  1. Providing home energy efficiency tools.
  2. Installing energy-efficient upgrades on community- serving facilities in disadvantaged census tracts.
  3. Deploying large-scale solar projects.
  4. Partnering with existing green economy workforce programs and helping to supplement the needs of those entering them.
