The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) has created the Catalyst Communities program, a comprehensive initiative to provide education, training, planning and technical resources to local public officials as they prepare for climate impacts on emergency response and public health.
The Office of Climate and Energy Catalyst Communities program takes a multi-tiered approach to providing communities across the state with the knowledge, tools, and resources they need to take steps toward a just transition to decarbonization. This program aims to provide a range of options to meet communities wherever they are, regardless of geography, population size, or pre-existing knowledge.
In this kick-off event, leaders from across the State of Michigan will share work underway to enhance the resilience of Michiganders. Attendees will learn about resources that can help advance local and regional resilience, stories of how state agencies are integrating resilience into their operations, and the stories of efforts to enhance resilience in some Michigan communities. Attendees will also learn more about a new cohort-based training program that will guide participants through the creation of a resilience and localized decarbonization plan. Join us at this exciting webinar and become part of the community working to ensure Michigan remains a resilient state for all.
EGLE Energy Services has a number of programs to support Michigan communities who are interested in advancing energy efficiency and clean energy for their own facilities, or taking steps to advance clean energy community-wide. In this webinar you can meet program staff and learn more about EGLE Energy Services and the Community Energy Management Program, including the funding available to local communities.
