CHEJ’s Small Grants Program helps grassroots, community organizing groups build their capacity. The program is designed to especially reach people from low-wealth communities and communities of color who are impacted by environmental harms.
Grant activities can include board development, membership outreach, and fundraising efforts. Project activities could also include meetings to develop an organizing strategic plan, training events, educational activities which are directly connected to your strategic plan, or membership recruitment. It is recommended that project activities be creative, effective and/or strategic.
This year, we are excited to announce that our small grants program has grown and can now support the work of both small and large grassroots community-based organizations, which are working on environment, health and justice issues.
