Request a Grant Writer

Grants starting at $50,000 to greater Park City, Utah nonprofit organizations, government entities, businesses, community groups, individuals, and others to address the impact of climate change and provide solutions to emissions reduction. The purpose of funding is to engage local residents and entities in greater Park City to implement local climate solutions that are proven to have great impact and that also have the potential to be effective in other communities, especially Mountain Towns 2030 communities.

By accepting shared responsibility to take climate action, Park City can reap a host of economic, health, and quality of life benefits for all. The Park City Climate Fund aims to support the implementation of substantive solutions that will have the greatest potential to reduce emissions or sequester carbon from the atmosphere.

The Park City Climate Fund will prioritize projects that focus on the greater Park City area (including Summit County and adjacent areas) and its particular climate action opportunities.

A partial list of areas of interest may include projects focused on tree planting, carbon sequestration through soils and vegetation, reduced food waste, regenerative agriculture, alternative energy sources, reduced energy use, a personal electric vehicle campaign, green building, public awareness campaigns, and others. Additional ideas for interventions may also be found on the Project Drawdown climate solutions list: https://www.drawdown.org/solutions-summary-by-rank

The potential projects listed above are meant to be illustrative, applications for other types of climate solution projects are welcome.
