Webinar to Present Updates on the Implementation of the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program


At 1 PM ET on Monday, March 1, officials from participating jurisdictions will provide updates on implementation of the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program (TCI-P) to cap greenhouse gas pollution from transportation.

Speakers will share proposed plans for public engagement and key efforts to ensure equitable outcomes for underserved and overburdened communities. They will present details of a draft “Model Rule” for the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program, and share information about how members of the public can engage and provide feedback and input.

In December, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia became the first jurisdictions to sign on to the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program (TCI-P), a groundbreaking effort to put a brake on pollution while generating $300 million per year for the participating jurisdictions to invest in equitable, cleaner transportation options and help energize economic recovery. In an accompanying statement, eight other Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast states signaled their plans to continue working with signatory jurisdictions on the development of the regional program while pursuing state-specific initiatives to further reduce emissions through equitable clean transportation solutions.

The TCI-P is expected to cut greenhouse gas pollution from transportation fuels in the region by an estimated 26% from 2022 to 2032. TCI-P was developed as part of the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI), an ongoing multi-jurisdictional collaboration of Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeastern states and the District of Columbia that seeks to improve transportation, develop the clean energy economy and reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector. 

The Transportation & Climate Initiative is facilitated by the Georgetown Climate Center. Please contact climate@georgetown.edu with questions or for webinar accessibility requests.
