SoCalGas is pleased to announce its Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Planning Grant Program for 2018! SoCalGas will award $100,000 in the form of two $50,000 planning grants to local governments currently participating in vulnerability assessments, climate adaptation and resiliency plans, or updating their local hazard mitigation plans to address climate adaptation through their General Plan process. An advisory panel of planning and sustainability experts will select the winning applications based on the following criteria:

- DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITIES: SoCalGas encourages applicants to address vulnerabilities in disadvantaged communities
- CO-BENEFITS:identify potential co-benefits of the adaptation work, such as benefits to public health, air quality, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, and the economy
