In 2021, Governor Jay Inslee signed the Climate Commitment Act (CCA). The CCA created a program that requires the state’s largest polluters to reduce greenhouse gas pollution. Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, trap the sun’s heat and are raising the temperature of the earth.

The CCA is the centerpiece of the state’s climate action efforts. Money from the program will support thousands of projects that reduce pollution and improve the environment. Some of that money likely will be invested in projects to improve shorelines and waterways for salmon, which also benefit humans and can help reduce climate change.

Under the CCA, applicants for funding must give tribal partners notice of proposed projects. The following project lists have been developed to support that notice and include INITIAL application information from applicants. The information will be updated after FINAL applications are received. Projects may change from initial to final application.
