Overview

Helping coal-affected communities prepare for the jobs of the future

What they do

Communities that have been reliant on the coal industry and power sector have seen their workforces and local economies distressed by the closures of plants and mines. The Just Transition Fund partners with coal-affected communities in 12 states to help them navigate workforce transitions. The Fund helps communities create new jobs in emerging sectors by providing direct investments, technical assistance, expert resources, and data-driven analysis and research.

How we're helping

With support from Google.org, the Just Transition Fund will offer learnings from the field to community leaders around the country. The Just Transition Fund is developing a blueprint for coal-affected communities undergoing workforce transitions, helping them to effectively prepare for jobs in emerging sectors.
