Environmental Justice Small Grants Program - Application Guidance FY2015

The Environmental Justice Small Grants (EJSG) Program provides funding for eligible applicants for projects that address local environmental and public health issues within an affected community.

The EJSG Program is designed to help communities understand and address exposure to multiple environmental

harms and risks.

The long-term goals of the EJSG Program are to help build the capacity of communities with environmental justice concerns and to create self-sustaining, community-based partnerships that will continue to improve local environments in the future.

The fiscal year 2015 program will consider proposals supporting community-based preparedness and resilience efforts (community climate resiliency).

The goal is to recognize the critical role of localized efforts in helping communities shape climate change strategies to avoid, lessen, or delay the risks and impacts associated with climate change.

An overarching goal of including this emphasis is to help bolster the efforts of underrepresented communities to address climate change vulnerabilities and develop solutions.
