Environmental Justice Fund - Bread & Roses Community Fund Grant for Greater Philadelphia Region

Opportunity Type: Funding

The Environmental Justice Fund is a special fund at Bread & Roses that will award one-time grants to grassroots groups that use community organizing to promote equitable access to a clean and healthy environment for communities and neighborhoods most impacted by environmental racism, climate change, and environmental injustice.

Environmental hazards and climate change affect everyone, but communities of color, immigrants, and people living in poverty experience more significant harms because of where they live and work. The most effective environmental and climate solutions come directly from impacted communities. Grants in the Environmental Justice Fund will be made to organizations where community members are in positions of leadership, where their lived experience is honored, where their knowledge influences the work, and where they meaningfully participate in project or campaign design and implementation.

Must be located in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, or Camden counties

The Environmental Justice Fund makes one-time grants of $10,000.
