Talk About RGGI Rally
What: Governor Youngkin continues to press that RGGI is bad for Virginians. Join with housing justice advocates outside the conference walls to raise awareness that RGGI funds fill a funding gap for energy efficiency programs for low-income housing! Tell Governor Youngkin: Do not repeal RGGI’s investment in energy efficiency for low income housing programs! The need exceeds the funds available.
When: Thursday, November 17th at 11:30 a.m.
Where: Hyatt Regency Crystal City - In front of the hotel
Join us Thursday, November 17th at 11:30am to remind Governor Youngkin and his administration that Virginia needs RGGI!
The 2022 Virginia Governor's Housing Conference (VAGHC) is coming up. Although the conference is run by the department that administers the energy efficiency funds from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), this successful program is scarce on the agenda of the conference. Energy efficiency makes housing more affordable, and we want to push the administration to stay in RGGI to continue to reduce the energy burden on low income Virginians. The need for these funds already outweighs what is currently available.
Why Virginia Needs RGGI:
Energy efficiency is a smart investment that pays for itself – but low-income households can’t afford the upfront costs by themselves, perpetuating a cycle of absurdly high energy bills and wasted energy. Tell Governor Youngkin: Don’t repeal RGGI’s investment in energy efficiency for low income housing programs!
