Leveraging Federal Funds for More Environmental Sustainability Efforts with PA IPL & JEA

This meeting, recorded Wednesday, March 16, 2022, was part of PA IPL’s ongoing partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance (JEA).

TOPIC:
Leveraging Federal Funds for More Environmental Sustainability Efforts

This joint session with JEA focuses on how to convince decision makers at all levels to leverage Federal funds for more environmental sustainability efforts.

Brian LaShier from Union of Concerned Scientists, the Senior Washington Representative for the UCS Climate & Energy Program, is our content speaker.

Pennsylvania is getting federal dollars from the Rescue and Infrastructure bills. Some of it, like EV charging stations or cleaning up abandoned oil drills, are obviously good for the environment. But there are other funds that could be used for environmental sustainability efforts or programs depending on how the rules or proposals get developed.

This session is intended for concerned citizens who are willing to speak to their local and state officials, and decision and policy makers of all kinds who apply for government grants.


JEA provides ongoing training and templates for monthly letter writing campaigns to local, state, and federal officials. The meetings provide a template, information, and guidance for all those who are interested in amplifying the message of Climate Justice.

Once you learn how easy Jewish Earth Alliance makes it, through their background information and template letter, for everyone to write letters to their federal officials, we hope you will write to your members of Congress now and for the next few months.
