The Commission is eager to begin addressing the impacts of climate change and related policies on vulnerable populations and communities through its Climate Ready VISTA Corps!
Through a grant from the Corporation of National and Community Service (CNCS), we are joined by six AmeriCorps VISTA members from four key state offices for a period of three years to address climate readiness and equity issues statewide that will help our most vulnerable communities thrive and be resilient in the face of climate change induced events and impacts. The program will integrate the climate change work of these four offices through data collection, outreach, education, and information dissemination. Climate Ready Hawai’i is also supported by AmeriCorps’ Kupu.
