The U.S. Department of Energy is hosting a webinar detailing the Justice40 Initiative. The initiative supports the federal goal that at least 40% of the benefits of certain federal investments flow to disadvantaged communities. The potential benefits are wide ranging, such as access to cleaner energy, air, and transportation, as well as training for clean energy jobs. For those planning projects with an energy and environmental justice component, an assortment of tools—Energy Justice Mapping Tool, Electric Vehicle Charging Justice40 Map Tool, Energy Zones Mapping Tool, and more—are available for identifying disadvantaged communities.
Register for the webinar, which will be held at 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on September 15, 2022, for an overview of these resources.

Join FTA and the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation to learn about new technical assistance being offered to transit agencies and entities receiving—or planning to apply for—federal funds to expand or transition their fleets with clean and green buses. FTA recently announced over $1.6 billion in FY22 funding to support new-technology buses through the Low- and No-Emission Vehicle and Buses and Bus Facilities programs.
Created by President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to facilitate collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation will share resources and guidance, through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, to eligible FTA entities seeking to transition their fleets to low- or no-emission transit vehicles.
Join FTA's webinar on Thursday, September 15, from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET to learn more about how to access the technical assistance. The webinar will be followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session to solicit feedback from industry stakeholders on topics of interest in clean fleet conversions.
