White House Report on Federal Actions to Address Climate Change

The White House has released a progress report that highlights some of the key actions taken by the Administration that support the State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force recommendations on Climate Preparedness and Resilience.  The President established the Task Force in 2013 as part of his Climate Action Plan to help the Federal Government respond to the needs of communities nationwide that are dealing with the impacts of climate change. The Task Force recommendations emphasized the importance of supporting communities that are likely to be disproportionately affected, including those that already face economic- or health-related challenges.  In addition to the progress report, the White House is also announcing a series of new actions focused on enhancing resilience in the communities most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change that includes over $25 million in private and public investments.  Visit the web site to view the report HERE.
