Are investments in the clean energy supply chain benefiting communities with lower incomes or higher levels of unemployment?

Our analysis, based on the census tract where projects are located, suggests the answer is yes.

Projects that have been announced since the Inflation Reduction Act became law are even more likely to be located in such communities.  Filter by "Post-IRA" below to see for yourself.

The analysis above are based on the socioeconomic indicators for the census tract where a project is located, meaning it is not factoring in indicators from surrounding census tracts or the larger metropolitan region.

This analysis is modeled on Nostrand and Ashenfarb, "The Inflation Reduction Act: A Placed-Based Analysis," US Treasury Department, November 29, 2023 [link].
