The Community Catalyst Fund, an initiative of Clean Air-Cool Planet, supports community groups in New Jersey, New York, and the six New England states working to improve local environmental sustainability and energy efficiency. Grants of $250 to $2,500 are provided for projects that will promote environmental sustainability, improve environmental stewardship, and/or decrease consumption of energy and fossil fuels on a local level. Examples of the types of projects funded include hiring interns to conduct energy inventories, implementing recycling programs, sponsoring speaker events, and developing websites and/or educational materials. Applying organizations must have an annual budget of less than $150,000, and the projects must serve at least one community of fewer than 25,000 permanent residents. (Communities of any size in Westchester County, NY may apply.) Applications may be submitted at any time. Visit the Clean Air-Cool Planet website to submit an online application form.
