Bay Area Lands, People, and Economy: A Snapshot Report of Green Stimulus Opportunities

TOGETHER Bay Area
May 2020
Details

TOGETHER Bay Area stands in partnership with government leaders to create transformational, enduring economic changes that effectively respond to the crises we face today. Green investments in infrastructure, public lands, natural resource management, and agricultural systems can retain tens of thousands of jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area, and support immediate-term jobs growth, while addressing climate change impacts, which many studies have shown would realize long-term cost savings and community resilience statewide.

TOGETHER Bay Area has conducted a simple, targeted survey of our 56 members to understand how our work currently contributes to the regional jobs market, and how retained, strategic investment in the state budget and a potential stimulus bond would support regional jobs growth, while providing multiple benefits to communities and the environment in the form of clean air, clean water, and access to nature.
