The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is the largest investment in reducing carbon pollution in U.S. history. As the largest rewrite of the tax code since the Reagan era, it holds great promise for both climate justice and national economic growth. In New York State, energy efficiency has been one of the cornerstones of our clean energy policy and combating climate change. So what exactly is different about this moment and what implications does the IRA have on environmental grantmaking?

Please join us to unpack the IRA, specifically as it relates to affordable housing, decarbonizing multi-unit buildings, community development, and developing a robust clean energy economy.

What will you learn?

  • Learn more about how the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), as a historic investment in climate, will uniquely impact environmental grantmaking and clean energy issues. We will better understand the direct pay mechanism and other innovative features of the policy. 
  • Examine the impact of the IRA through the lens of affordable housing as it relates to renters in multi-unit spaces and questions of displacement and equity. 
  • Explore how the IRA will specifically impact community development, and the Brownfields to Brightfields effort to turn underutilized spaces into build-ready sites for renewable energy projects.
  • Discuss how the subsidy and tax policies of the IRA and state-level policy can help scale a clean energy economy that creates good jobs statewide.
  • Better understand the implications of the IRA on foundations (and in particular, community foundations) and philanthropy's strategic role in ensuring the proposed impact of the IRA is actualized.


Who should attend?

All interested funders in environment, grantmaking, public policy, and related roles. What to expect: panel discussion followed by Q&A.
