Sonoma Climate Mobilization: Funding for Climate Change

The Funding for Climate Change Committee aims to foster community-based efforts to engage climate experts, residents, and organizations in developing recommendations to the RCPA Board for an expenditure plan supporting a potential climate revenue measure in 2024. To successfully secure voter approval for the climate revenue measure, RCPA recognizes that it needs to gather input from community members representing the diversity of Sonoma County. The RCPA Board will use the recommendations from the Funding for Climate Change Committees and inputs from other stakeholders to decide on the contents of the final expenditure plan.

We need your help! The RCPA Board is seeking your ideas and expertise on how best we can address climate change locally and equitably. We will look at three major categories based on the Sonoma Climate Mobilization Strategy and create three Program Committees:

The purpose of each Program Committee is to provide a forum for climate experts and interested community members to discuss and evaluate potential climate solutions. From there we will create a list of programs and projects for consideration by the RCPA Board and explore how best to fund future action.
Learn more about the Program Committees on December 14th or let us know now if you are interested in serving on a committee by filling out the online form below.

¡Necesitamos de tu ayuda! La Junta de la RCPA está solicitando tus ideas y experiencia para encontrar la mejor forma de tratar el cambio climático a nivel local y de manera equitativa. Tendremos tres categorías principales basadas en la Estrategia de Movilización Climática de Sonoma (Sonoma Climate Mobilization Strategy) y crear tres Comités Programáticos:

El propósito de cada Comité Programático es proveer un foro para que expertos en el clima y miembros de la comunidad interesados en el tema puedan discutir y evaluar soluciones climáticas potenciales. A partir de ahí, haremos una lista de programas y proyectos para ponerlos a consideración de la Junta de la RCPA y explorar la mejor manera de obtener fondos para acciones futuras.
