"The White House says the New Deal-style program will “mobilize the next generation of conservation and resilience workers.”"
"The Biden administration’s $2 trillion infrastructure package unveiled on Wednesday envisions a New Deal-style effort to combat climate change while also protecting and restoring America’s public lands.
The plan includes $10 billion to create a federal Civilian Climate Corps, akin to the Civilian Conservation Corps that was established in 1933 as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal.
The White House said the new program will “mobilize the next generation of conservation and resilience workers.”
The investment “will put a new, diverse generation of Americans to work conserving our public lands and waters, bolstering community resilience, and advancing environmental justice through a new Civilian Climate Corps, all while placing good-paying union jobs within reach for more Americans,” reads a lengthy fact sheet on the plan."
