Displacement Avoidance

Displacement Avoidance Plan Summary

The Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Program administered by the Strategic Growth Council (SGC) establishes a new framework for achieving California’s climate goals by concentrating significant resources to accelerate local greenhouse gas emission reductions and uplift the State’s most disadvantaged communities. While revitalization brings many benefits, there are reasons to be concerned about the negative effect that increased investment and development might have on vulnerable populations. As such, the TCC Program also requires policies and programs to avoid the displacement of existing residents and local businesses, to help ensure these key stakeholders benefit from the investment. As a recipient of Program funds, the City of Fresno has led the development of a Displacement Avoidance Plan (DAP) through a community process that informs the design of the plan that includes strategies to reduce economic displacement risk within the Project Area comprised of Chinatown, Downtown and Southwest Fresno.
