Plan Area Map
The Indio Transformative Climate Communities Program focuses on the Downtown and Jewel Community which rank in the top 5% of disadvantaged communities in the State. This ranking qualifies these areas for grants which aim to improve public health and promote economic developement.
- City of Indio
- TCC Plan Area
Future community projects and investments could support public health and economic opportunities in the planning area by providing resources such as: community gardens, after-school space, job training, school improvements, or small business incubators.
Future housing projects could provide sustainable affordable housing that provide clean-transportation amenities, such as free-transit passes or electric vehicle car-share and energy savings that are passed along to the residents.
Future strategic transportation projects could encourage people to walk, bike, and take mass-transit more often by making it more comfortable and convenient as well as create enhanced connections within and outside the planning area.
Future urban greening projects could add trees and parks in the planning area to improve air quality, reduce heat, and prevent flooding

The California Strategic Growth Council’s (SGC) Transformative Climate Communities Program (TCC) empowers the communities most impacted by pollution to choose their own goals, strategies, and projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollution. Administered in partnership with the California Department of Conservation (DOC), TCC funds community-led planning, development and infrastructure projects that achieve major environmental, health, and economic benefits in California’s most disadvantaged communities.

Downtown and the Jewel community include the only Census Tracts in the Coachella Valley that rank in the top 5% of disadvantaged by the State. This ranking means that the Jewel community qualifies for TCC Implementation Grants which aim to improve public health and promote economic development. Disadvantaged communities are those communities that are exposed to the most pollution and have the fewest resources to respond.
