We’re helping fossil fuel–dependent communities across America develop strategies to support their local economies.

Resources for the Future, the Columbia University Center on Global Energy Policy, and the Bezos Earth Fund invite you to submit a proposal for applied research on strategies to help US fossil fuel–dependent communities navigate the transition to a net zero emissions future. Starting on May 1, 2024, we will welcome proposals that inform strategies to build economic resilience and particularly encourage submissions from scholars from fossil fuel–dependent communities.
