The Environmental Justice Fund 2020
A program of the City of Seattle. Administered by The Bullitt Foundation.
The Environmental Justice Fund is now accepting applications and the deadline to apply is Friday, September 25! There is $500,000 in funding available from the City of Seattle and up to $60,000 per proposal. This funding supports efforts that are led by and benefit the people most affected by environmental and climate issues: Black, Indigenous, People of Color, immigrants, refugees, people with low incomes, youth and elders who live, learn, work, play, and worship in the city of Seattle.
The Office of Sustainability & Environment (OSE) knows that COVID-19 is impacting our communities in ways that we are just beginning to understand. It is for this reason that we seek to fund projects that address the impacts of COVID-19 connected to the community and environmental health. OSE will host two virtual information sessions on September 10 & 14 to share an overview of the Environmental Justice Fund, qualities of a strong application, the review process, and answer any questions you may have. Check out the website to register and find out more. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (206)615-0817.
