Public Input Sessions
Public Input Sessions
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy’s Office of Climate and Energy, along with councils of government and community-based organizations, is holding five in-person sessions plus two virtual sessions to gain input from the general public on strategic, equitable implementation of the MI Healthy Climate Plan (MHCP). Released in 2021 after a rigorous, statewide stakeholder engagement process, the MHCP underscores the urgent need for action on climate and identifies bold, necessary, and strategic measures to deliver a carbon neutral economy. The MHCP identifies actions to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 50-52% from 2005 baselines by 2030 in an equitable manner.
In preparation for competitive federal funding as part of the Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) Program, we are seeking feedback to prioritize key strategies in the MHCP with greatest near-term GHG reduction measures. Your feedback will help us deliver outcomes that curb the worst impacts of climate change, improve public health, create economic opportunity, lower costs, protect our natural resources, and make investments to address historical, current, and future environmental injustices. These investments will also position Michigan’s communities and Michiganders for leadership in the years and decades ahead.
Note: These public input sessions are on an accelerated timeline due to the requirements put forth in the CPRG by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. If you cannot attend any of these sessions, scroll down to the end of this page to see other ways to provide input.
