Stockton Rising is a City-led program aiming to improve the environment and climate resilience of neighborhoods most impacted by Climate Change and poor environmental conditions. The City, along with 11 Partners, is implementing projects that will directly benefit residents in South Stockton. Stockton Rising is supported by the California Strategic Growth Council's (SGC) Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Program with funds from California Climate Investments - Cap-and-Trade Dollars at Work.
Stockton Rising offers several no-cost programs for residents within the TCC Project Area (explore the project area here). These programs offer major benefits, including solar installation, energy- and water-efficiency upgrades, and tree planting services. The impact of these projects will be a cleaner, healthier, and safer environment for residents, as well as significant cost savings for participating households.
