The Just Transition Fund is dedicated to helping coal-affected communities build strong, resilient, and diversified new energy economies.

Across the United States, hundreds of communities are economically dependent on coal mines and coal-fired power plants. As the country undergoes a historic energy transition, we must ensure the communities and workers most affected by the resulting economic changes are not left behind.

As an innovative philanthropic initiative—part grantmaker, part catalyst—the Fund creates economic opportunity in places hardest hit by the energy transition. We find, fund, and help scale community-based transition efforts that align with our commitment to sustainable economic development, equity, and energy resilience.
