OCCHE Launches Program to Ensure Access to Financial Assistance

Life Safety; Emergency Preparedness
The Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Climate Change and Health Equity (OCCHE) is launching a “catalytic program” in 2024 to support health care providers, especially safety net organizations, in taking advantage of the tax credits, grants and other supports made available by the historic Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Investments and actions potentially facilitated by the IRA include energy efficient building improvements, transportation, on-site renewable energy generation, increased building resilience and increased community resilience. Details on the tax credits, grants and other supports can be found here

More details on the initiative will be provided during a November 30th information session which you can sign up for here. The session begins at 12pm EST. Questions and feedback can be sent to: OCCHE@HHS.GOV​. ​
