The City of Los Angeles is seeking public input on how to spend the Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant from the federal stimulus package – approximately $37 million which can be used in various ways to reduce energy use, reduce fossil fuel emissions, improve energy efficiency, and maximize benefits for local communities – public health, good jobs and equitable business opportunities.
It is critical that energy efficiency programs are built with the expertise, creativity and innovation of the green business community, with integrity, and with the understanding that programs and initiatives will be held to high standards.
The public meetings are nearly over but there is an opportunity to complete an online survey where you can give feedback about our City priorities. Go to this link to complete the survey as soon as possible: http://www.environmentla.org/EECBG/EECBG.htm
Here is a link to a recent letter of support by the Sustainability Committee of the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council for the Los Angeles Convention Center application.
