In 2018, the City of Stockton was awarded a Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) Planning Grant in the amount of $170,000 by the Strategic Growth Council to support planning activities in the Downtown and South Stockton region. Stockton’s City Council passed the resolution for the project. Local partners within the project area are co-creating a neighborhood-level blueprint for sustainable development, updating the city's existing tree inventory, and facilitating a community leadership program that will train residents in the area on climate-related topics. 

Through this process, the City of Stockton, its partners, and the community created Rise Stockton to carry the work forward beyond the planning phase.



Rise Stockton partners work collaboratively to empower the communities most impacted by pollution to choose their own goals, strategies, and projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollution. Rise Stockton works to prioritize development and infrastructure projects that achieve major environmental, health, and economic benefits in California’s most disadvantaged communities.
