Who Should Attend:  This webinar is for clergy, nonprofit staff and board members, governmental decision-makers, and activists who want to learn about these exciting opportunities.

Part 1: A basic overview of the IRA: clean energy and clean transportation tax credits available to tax-exempt entities for the first time through Direct Pay — what we know and what we do not know regarding eligibility, timing, and procedures.

Part 2: Overview of the Energy Justice/Environmental Justice-related incentives and strategies for tax-exempt organizations, including “ripple effect” benefits for job training, cleaner local communities, energy-efficient affordable housing development, electric transportation solutions, and weather resiliency.

Part 3: IRA strategies and best practices for 2023 and beyond. What smart tax-exempt organizations can do to truly thrive under the new program opportunities.
