Drawdown Georgia

In partnership with the Georgia Hispanic Construction Association and the Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance, Gwinnett Housing Corporation was awarded a $200,000  Drawdown Georgia Climate Solutions and Equity grant to develop a comprehensive federal investment and workforce development plan to benefit disadvantaged communities in one of the most diverse and under-resourced parts of Gwinnett County. The partnership will ultimately create a roadmap to invest federal funds in energy-insecure communities that will expand access to weatherization and build energy efficiency and clean energy minority job pipelines. In addition, the partners will assess roadblocks to minority business enterprise participation in energy efficiency services and work with local contractors to provide training and resources for BIPOC contractors.

Funding partners for the initiative include the R. Howard Dobbs, Jr. Foundation and its Dobbs Fund, The Wilbur & Hilda Glenn Family FoundationThe Kendeda FundThe Ray C. Anderson Foundation’s NextGen Committee, and The Sapelo Foundation.
