Environment Committee Community Grants
2022 Grants for Green Community Projects
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.
Applications must be received by Tuesday March 1, 2022. Notifications of grant awards be announced by April 1st. Grantees are then obliged to submit a report with receipts describing exactly how the money was spent by Nov. 1, 2022.
