DCGB Statements on EPA’s Historic Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Announcement

Today, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing its selections for $20 billion in grant awards under two competitions within the historic $27 billion Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. These dollars will transform communities across the country, and our team is ready to leverage these resources and put them to work right here in the District.

Congratulations to the EPA team on their fantastic achievement.



“Today’s announcement is a major milestone on the road to investing in a cleaner and more prosperous future in every community across the country. The DC Green Bank congratulates the EPA on their monumental efforts to launch the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. We are proud to join a national network of green banks and support the Coalition for Green Capital to advance inclusive prosperity and clean energy solutions in underserved communities. We applaud all of the awardees under the National Clean Investment Fund (NCIF) and the Clean Communities Investment Accelerator (CCIA), and by working together we will accelerate investment in climate mitigation, clean energy jobs, and DC communities.”

DC Green Bank CEO, Trisha Miller


“DC Green Bank’s ability to continue building resilient infrastructure, invest in local businesses and scale clean energy projects is fortified by today’s announcement. These critical strategic partnerships and resources will better prepare municipalities across our great nation to support generations to come. After a decade of collaboration, we applaud the work of this broad coalition demonstrating the power of green finance’s ability to transform our nation’s capital and America.”
