The Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) will host a workshop and roundtable discussion focused on advancing equity and addressing the transportation priorities of underserved and disproportionately affected communities as part of a regional low-carbon cap and invest program design.
This workshop is free and open to the public. The event is co-hosted with the New Jersey Innovation Institute.
This TCI event is part of a series of workshops in 2019 that are being facilitated by the Georgetown Climate Center on behalf of participating TCI states. These events will serve as opportunities for TCI jurisdictions to consult with experts, residents, communities, businesses, and other stakeholders who may inform a regional low-carbon transportation policy. In-person workshops will also provide opportunities for stakeholders to provide input and engage in the program development process. Learn more about this process on the TCI website.

About the Transportation and Climate Initiative:
TCI is a collaboration of state environmental, energy, and transportation agencies that are working together to develop a regional policy for low-carbon transportation. On December 18, 2018, nine states and Washington D.C. issued a statement committing to developing a policy that delivers a better, cleaner, more resilient transportation system that benefits all of our communities, particularly those underserved by current transportation options and disproportionately affected by pollution, while making significant reductions in greenhouse gases and other harmful air pollution across the region.
