Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funds (GGRF)

Proceeds from the Cap-and-Trade Program support a wide range of programs and projects that reduce greenhouse gas emission and deliver major economic, environmental and public health benefits for Californians, including meaningful benefits to the most disadvantaged communities, low-income communities, and low-income households. As part of the Cap-and-Trade Program, the Legislature and Governor appropriate money from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to State agencies through the Budget process.
