The increasing competitiveness of clean energy and growing efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are reshaping the US energy economy.

Federal investments through things such as workforce development and infrastructure expansion can mitigate such costs and provide new opportunities for prosperity.

This issue brief provides an overview of federally supported community hubs as a policy option to support local development efforts in energy regions in transition.
