Funding for Environmental Justice Projects

Local green non-profits might want to apply for new Cal EPA grants of up to $20,000 each to be used for environmental justice projects. The program has $250,000 to give away.

Applications must be received in Sacramento by Aug. 5. The stated goals of the funds are to:

- Enhance meaningful public participation.
- Promote community capacity building.
- Collaborate with academia and/or other governmental agencies to document data related to exposures and health complaints.
- Promote community involvement in climate change emission reduction processes and programs.
- Provide funds to continue and/or expand projects funded under the previous grant cycle that have proven effective with excellent progress and results.
