The Environment Program team has updated a fact sheet about its Climate Resilience and Urban Opportunity initiative.
The revised document is available in the kresge.org library along with other material related to the grant opportunity. The updated fact sheet addresses questions raised by participants in a recent webinar.
The initiative will assist community-based nonprofits positioned to help influence local and regional climate-resilience planning, and related policy development and implementation.
Support provided through the initiative focuses on improving the resilience of low-income, urban communities in the face of climate change. It is intended to ensure that climate resilience activities reflect the knowledge, priorities and needs of low-income residents.
The Environment Program team expects to award as many as 20 planning grants through the Climate Resilience and Urban Opportunity initiative this fall. (Learn more about the initiative in a July 1 program update.)
Statements of qualifications must be submitted via Kresge’s online application system by 5 p.m. EDT, July 31, 2014.
