Who We Are

The Pennsylvania Public Health Association (PPHA) is an nonprofit membership organization that serves as a unifying voice to *promote* public health across the Keystone State. 


Establish long-term clean energy tax incentives

Ten-year tax incentives for clean electricity, energy storage and transmission will help drive innovation and deployment of pollution-free energy, and the inclusion of these tax incentives in the final bill will represent a large portion of the emissions reductions needed to reduce climate-warming greenhouse gas emissions 50% by 2030. 

Rapidly transition to zero-emission vehicles and technology

The transportation sector is the largest contributor to greenhouse gases and a significant source of air pollution. Making it easier to purchase electric vehicles, including medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, through tax credits and incentives, paired with investments in the necessary charging infrastructure to support them, will have immediate health benefits by way of reductions in air pollution and long-term benefits by reducing climate pollution. 

Commit to environmental justice by ensuring 40% of investments in clean air go to frontline communities

Any efforts to reduce air and climate pollutants should not worsen existing inequities and should direct benefits to the communities that have been disproportionately burdened by air pollution and climate change. 

Firearm Morbidity and Mortality Prevention

Provide $35 million for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and $25 million for the National Institute of Health (NIH) to conduct public health research into firearm morbidity and mortality prevention as part of FY 2025 appropriations.
