Request for Proposals: Community Based Climate Change, Health & Equity Strategy
The community-based strategy of The Kresge Foundation’s Climate Change, Health & Equity Initiative is anchored by a multi-year effort that seeks to strengthen the leadership and effectiveness of community organizations working to implement policies and practices that improve climate resilience and reduce health risks equitably. Projects funded through the community-based strategy will advance the adoption and implementation of climate mitigation, climate adaptation and climate resilience policies and programs at the local, regional, and/or state levels that improve public health outcomes and drive investments to improve quality of life. This strategy will include a 14-month planning phase for roughly 12 to 15 sites, followed by a three-year implementation period. The deadline for submitting a letter of intent is 11:59 p.m. ET March 19, 2019.
An informational webinar will be held on Wednesday, February, 20, 2019 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. EST. Click here to register for the webinar.
