Resource Type: Guide

This playbook offers frontline groups and community organizations guidance for developing a People’s Justice40+ Community Benefit Plan (CBP).  The goal is to ensure that federal infrastructure and climate investments significantly benefit the communities that need them most. A successful CBP will harness the infrastructure investments of major federal initiatives – such as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act – to meet community needs. These resources are also relevant for other, current and future, infrastructure investments at the local, state, and federal level needed for environmental reparation, climate resilience, and addressing health and wealth disparities within marginalized communities.
