Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA organizations based nationally or internationally for environmental projects in the areas of climate change mitigation, public health concerns resulting from pollution, and conservation that will promote wildlife biodiversity. Specifically, grants from the Fund are made to:

- Mitigate climate change by promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy, reducing transportation-related emissions, modernizing the grid, and minimizing the impacts of fossil fuel-related activities.

- Make communities, especially the most disadvantaged, more resilient to a changing climate by improving infrastructure, protecting shorelines with natural barriers, encouraging more sustainable building design and land use, and promoting better preparation for weather-related emergencies.

- Protect public health from the hazards of toxic pollutants, especially for low-income and other vulnerable people, by supporting targeted scientific research, promoting safer chemical and heavy metal policies and practices, eliminating toxic chemicals from products, and enhancing protections for low-income communities near polluting facilities.

- Preserve biological diversity through habitat conservation by establishing and enhancing migratory corridors, and ensuring that species can move safely between fragmented habitat.

Internationally, only U.S.-based organizations will be supported that are building the capacity of government, academic institutions, private sector entities, and nonprofits to protect biodiversity, improve environmental health, and reduce greenhouse gases around the world.

With the exception of those focused on New York State, all projects must benefit more than one U.S. state or territory to be considered.
