Grants to New York nonprofit community-based organizations for projects that address public health and environmental concerns for minority and low-income communities. Applicants must pre-register at least five days before the deadline. Collaborative projects are encouraged.
Community Impact Grants provide funding for projects that address environmental and public health threats in low-income and minority communities, such as a large number of regulated facilities, contaminated sites, noise, air, and water pollution, health problems and a lack of green space and waterfront access. Grants are available for community-based organizations to fully or partially fund projects that address environmental justice related concerns including, but not limited to environmental research, community gardens, tree plantings, education and curriculum development, urban farming training, habitat restoration, and the monitoring of air, and water quality. These grants have helped communities generate data through community-based science and have helped to engage residents in addressing and understanding the challenges and opportunities for improving community health, safety, and sustainability.
