Addressing climate change goes beyond environmental impact. It’s also about improving people’s lives. Our plan to fund green projects in low-income and disadvantaged areas will deliver healthier air, greener transportation, cleaner water and better-paying jobs to communities across the country.

Revitalizing Communities with Essential Resources

Every day, we deliver the resources needed to improve the health, jobs, housing and economies in the neighborhoods we serve. This fund will bridge the longstanding disconnect between large-scale government investment in the nation's infrastructure and its benefit in the most disadvantaged communities.

Green Solutions for People-Powered Progress

Collectively, JCF has financial strength, a vast grassroots presence and expertise in green lending. In bringing together the best ideas and solutions, our work empowers people to access technologies and strategies that lower energy costs, reduce pollution and create jobs.

Above all else, our strategy puts control in the hands of those most directly impacted by climate change and ensures that communities are at the nucleus of change for building a stronger, greener economy with lasting benefits for all Americans.
