CHEJ Grant Opportunity
Proposals are due February 1, 2017
Project must be completed and a final report submitted by November 1, 2017.
CHEJ has a Small Grants Program for grassroots groups working on environmental health and justice issues. If you are a grassroots group or working directly with a grassroots’ group, please consider submitting an application.
Grant activities can include board development, membership outreach, and fundraising efforts. Project activities could also include meetings to develop an organizing/ strategic plan, training leaders to go door-to-door, events, educational activities which are directly connected to your strategic plan, or general events. It is recommended that project activities be creative, effective, and strategic.
Grassroots communities of color, low wealth, rural and urban groups are encouraged to apply. This grant program will support projects that help groups move towards their goals by building leadership, increasing capacity and/or providing training and education. A priority of CHEJ’s Small Grants Program is to help grassroots community groups to build their capacity. The program is designed to especially reach people from low wealth communities and communities of color who are impacted by environmental harms. APPLY TODAY
