Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles), Sen. María Elena Durazo (D-Los Angeles) and the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator on July 23 celebrated their $10 million “budget win” to create green jobs and launch marginalized communities into the green economy.
The funding will be used to fund minority and female-owned startups, create green jobs and advance zero-emission transportation and clean-energy solutions in disadvantaged communities.
“Our communities deserve to breathe clean air, work good paying jobs, and thrive in tomorrow’s economy,” Santiago said. “It took a pandemic for my neighbors to breathe clean air. [The money] represents an investment in our children’s future, in our communities’ prosperity and in the health of our neighbors and friends. I’m so proud to have the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator in my district, as they are making leaps and bounds to ensure our communities are included in the green economy and that we move away from fossil fuels.”
The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator is a nonprofit organization focused on building an inclusive green economy. It was founded as an economic development initiative by the city of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power.
