WASHINGTON, DC, March 13, 2024 America Is All In, the largest coalition of leaders ever assembled for climate action, announced today that it is going on the road to unlock federal funding that will spur local investments and accelerate the clean energy transition. Throughout the year, America Is All In will host events, roundtable discussions and workshops that encourage cities, states, businesses and more to cash in on clean energy opportunities in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

During the nationwide tour, Gina McCarthy, managing Co-Chair of America Is All In and former White House national climate advisor or other America Is All In leadership, will be joined by local organizations, policymakers, and business leaders to highlight the economic, health, and equity benefits of projects that are accelerating the transition to clean energy. America Is All In plans to visit Cleveland, OH, Houston, TX, and Seattle, WA in the spring and summer, with more cities to be announced.

At the U.N.’s COP28, America Is All In announced that it will develop a comprehensive stakeholder engagement process to provide subnational feedback to the U.S. Federal Government on its updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), required as part of the Paris Agreement; the America Is All In tour will bring together subnational partners that are committed to a net-zero transition to identify practical solutions on each of the NDC sectors.

This year’s tour builds on the success of 2023’s Cash In On Clean Energy Tour organized by America Is All In where experts met with local leaders in Charlotte, NC, Orlando, FL, and Columbus, OH to provide guidance on how to access different components of the IRA, including direct pay and tax credits. Since the Inflation Reduction Act became law in August 2022, U.S. companies have announced and advanced 524 new clean energy projects, totaling 271,788 new jobs and over $352 billion in investments across 47 states and Puerto Rico.

"Right now, thanks to the historic funding from the Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, more action is happening to tackle climate change, transition off fossil fuels, and accelerate clean energy than ever before. Through targeted tax credits and smart financial incentives, consumers, businesses, and organizations all across our country can have access to cleaner and more affordable energy,” said Gina McCarthy, Managing Co-Chair of America Is All In and former White House national climate advisor. “That's why we're hitting the road. We want to make sure families cash in on the opportunities they have to save money, breathe clean air indoors and out, make our electric grids stronger and more resilient to extreme weather, and grow lots of new, good-paying clean energy jobs for workers - a quarter million jobs so far!" 

“The America Is All In tour will help more local leaders tap into federal funding that can improve public health, create good-paying jobs, and fight climate change – all at once,” said Michael R. Bloomberg, UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy on Climate Ambition and Solutions, founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Co-Chair of America Is All In. “Cities have an unprecedented opportunity to access federal support, and we’re working to help ensure they can take full advantage of it.”

“In Washington state, the Inflation Reduction Act is set to bring an estimated $5.3 billion of investment in large-scale clean power generation and storage. The IRA is supercharging policies like our Climate Commitment Act to deliver the assistance and resources Washingtonians need to transition to a clean energy future, while creating good-paying clean energy jobs,” said Governor Jay Inslee, Co-Chair of America Is All In. “Every city and state across the country deserves to unlock the opportunities this historic climate legislation will bring. The America Is All In Tour will help connect communities to tangible opportunities to secure the health of our planet and our children.”

Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles, Co-Chair of America Is All In, said, “The America Is All In tour provides an opportunity for communities to access all the benefits of the Inflation Reduction Act. When Gina McCarthy and America Is All In stopped in Charlotte last year, we were able to help other leaders in my city better understand how they can create sustainable projects that create jobs. The Inflation Reduction Act is a critical piece of Charlotte’s plan to meet its goal of becoming a low-carbon city by 2050, and I know other cities will benefit from knowing how to tap into that funding to reach their climate goals.”

Lisa Jackson, Apple’s Vice President of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives; former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator; Co-Chair of America Is All In said, “Businesses are critical partners in helping build and secure a clean energy economy in our country in the important years ahead. At Apple, we want to be a model for how businesses can drive climate action in a way that brings others along with us - from the companies in our supply chain to the clean energy people use to charge their Apple devices every day.”

Cleveland Mayor Justin M. Bibb, Chair of Climate Mayors said, “Cities are at the forefront of climate action in this country, and Cleveland is ‘All In.’ As the Mayor of Cleveland and Chair of Climate Mayors, I am looking forward to continuing our work on implementing ambitious and just climate solutions while putting the historic funding available through the Inflation Reduction Act to work for our communities.”  

The tour officially kicked off Monday at Aspen Ideas: Climate in Miami, where America Is All In’s Managing Co-Chair Gina McCarthy announced the tour during a roundtable with C40 Cities, Climate Mayors, and the Urban Sustainability Directors Network. Co-Chair Lisa Jackson also spoke during a session about how public and private sectors can work together to drive down emissions.
