To kick off the Broadband Initiative, the JTF has invested nearly $1 million in eight organizations working to close the digital divide in coal-impacted communities across the U.S.
One of the biggest roadblocks to closing coal companies is finding jobs for all the people who will be put out of work. The Just Transition Fund aims to bring broadband to coal country.
The pandemic exacerbated the economic, political and cultural differences in the United States. Big problems call for big solutions, which is what motivated Heidi Binko to create The Just Transition Fund to create a pathway for coal communities to move away from coal.
We know from our experience supporting economic transition in coal-impacted communities that the best way to achieve successful outcomes is to plan early and ensure that all affected stakeholders are at the table to help craft solutions. These best practices hold true for communities working to transition their economies away from other fossil fuels.
The Workday Foundation’s $1 million Just Transition Grant Fund aims to make investments in non-profit organizations working to train workers for in-demand jobs in a low-carbon economy, in part by supporting the Just Transition Fund's Federal Access Center and broadband programs.
