Kresge Grant: Climate Resilience and Urban Opportunity
JULY 31, 2014 - 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM ET
Kresge is currently accepting statements of qualifications from community-based nonprofits positioned to help influence local and regional climate-resilience planning, and related policy development and implementation.
As many as 20 planning grants will be awarded to organizations with a record of effective work in low-income communities and an interest in deepening their involvement and leadership in local and/or regional climate-resilience efforts.
Those planning grants will support the development of multiyear work plans detailing ways the organizations will engage in climate-resilience planning, policy development and implementation efforts to advance the priorities and needs of low-income people.
Each nine-month planning grant will provide up to $100,000. Based on the resulting work plan, up to 15 planning-grant recipients will be invited to apply for multiyear project implementation grants.
Interested organizations should submit material via Kresge’s online application system by 5 p.m. EDT, July 31, 2014.
