Who pays for it?

The first year of this 3-year program in fall 2022 is funded by California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities. During the second and third years (fall 2023 – summer 2025), Orange Coast College will pay for the cost of this partnership.
