Climate XChange, Evergreen Collaborative, and RMI reviewed 47 climate plans from 45 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia that were submitted to the U.S. EPA as part of the Climate Pollution Reduction Grants (CPRG) program. This program, a major component of the Inflation Reduction Act, provides $5 billion in grants to states, local governments, Tribes, and territories to develop and implement plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollution.

CPRG grantees were required to submit a Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP) this spring, detailing the strategies each state is exploring to address climate change across their economies. In total, we analyzed more than 650 PCAP measures from states and territories, which collectively account for about 90 percent of the country’s population and climate pollution. To make the data and information in the plans more accessible, this spreadsheet pulls out and organizes key information from the plans.

Content can be filtered by several fields, including state and sector, making it easier to digest and understand the vast quantity of information included in state plans. We hope the climate community can utilize this spreadsheet to identify trends and gaps in state planning efforts to inform future climate action.

For more information on the methodology used in our PCAP review, see the About tab on the spreadsheet.
