Sacramento Region Greenhouse Gas Reduction Pilot Program

Green Means Go is a multi-year pilot program to lower greenhouse gas emissions in the six-county Sacramento region by accelerating infill development, reducing vehicle trips, and electrifying remaining trips. Local jurisdictions will designate Green Zones, in which they must take specific actions to promote infill development and reduce existing barriers and provide new transportation options. State funding is needed to help implement these actions and further incentivize local development and housing production.
