Environment Committee Community Grants

2022 Grants for Green Community Projects - Now CLOSED

The Weavers Way Environment Committee invites community groups with projects in areas served by Weavers Way or with projects in underserved communities to submit proposals for grants. Grant funds are awarded each year for clearly identifiable public purposes resulting in a tangible environmental improvement for the community. Most grants are awarded for public purposes that benefit the environment through education, tree planting, community gardens,  and certain environmentally related job training (see guidelines).  Funds may be used for such projects as planting trees and herbaceous plants, garden equipment and enhancement of parks. Some environmentally based educational programs have also been funded through this program. No salaries are covered by the grants. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate efforts to address climate change.

Grant amounts range from $100 to $500, depending upon the available funds and the number of qualified applicants. The Environment Committee hosts Electronic Recycling once a year and up until earlier in 2021 ran a TerraCycle recycling program for the Co-op in order to raise funds for these grants. Also, from time-to-time, funds have been raised through “Giving Tuesday”. The Committee is grateful to all those in the community who have contributed.

Check back next year for the 2023 round of grants!
