Climate Infrastructure Financing
The Treasurer's Office has been tasked by the Legislature to coordinate the State’s climate infrastructure financing efforts, collaborating with stakeholders to create a framework for effective collaboration among Vermont organizations, agencies, and the financial instrumentalities of the State to maximize the amount of federal Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funds the State may receive and effectively coordinate the deployment of these and other greenhouse gas reduction funds.
The Treasurer shall submit recommendations to the General Assembly regarding legislation for Vermont’s climate infrastructure financing on or before January 15, 2024.
Request for Public Comment:
The Legislature identified a number of specific stakeholders to engage in this work, but Treasurer Pieciak would like to hear from as many Vermonters as possible and incorporate their ideas. Written comments will be accepted through Friday, November 3, 2023 and may be submitted to: Tre.ClimateFinance@vermont.gov.
Treasurer Pieciak will also hold a series of in-person and virtual public meetings this Fall to discuss ideas and strategies on financing Vermont’s climate infrastructure.
