The Community and Neighborhood Matching Grant program now includes an opportunity to fund sustainability projects! Funding is available for programs that provide climate change education, measurable carbon emission reductions, measurable carbon sequestration benefits, increasing climate change resilience, or climate change equity initiatives. The application for large projects ($5,000 - $12,000) is now open! See the guidelines and application online!
All large projects are required to go through pre-review by March 11, 2020.
Including funding for innovative climate change related actions was one of the additional actions City Council committed to during the CAP2.0 presentation in November 2019.
