The Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment is inviting applications for its Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund.
The fund supports small grassroots groups in northern California working to address tough environmental challenges in the region, including toxic pollution, urban sprawl, sustainable agriculture, climate change, and environmental degradation of rivers and wild places.
Project impact must be focused on northern California (including the entire Sierra Nevada, the Bay Area, the Central Valley, the Central Coast, and the North Coast). Issues eligible for funding include environmental health and justice, land management and urban sprawl, habitat and wilderness protection, sustainable forestry, water resources, agriculture, sustainability, and pollution.
To be eligible, applicants must have an annual budget or expenses of $100,000 or less and be a nonprofit, fiscally sponsored by another nonprofit, or interested in applying for fiscal sponsorship from the fund.
See the Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
