The Vermont Community Foundation (VCF) is seeking proposals for programs or projects that help local communities adapt to the impacts of Vermont’s changing climate and increasing frequency of severe weather events. VCF’s Environmental Justice Small Grant Program will support communities with heightened risk and greater sensitivity to climate change, specifically communities with less capacity and fewer resources to cope with, adapt to, or recover from climate impacts. Projects may represent a wide spectrum of ideas and activities, including arts, community education and skill building, food access, green jobs, projects that reduce risk and harm, multi-generational climate activities, youth leadership, movement building, and more. Applications will be accepted until December 1, 2023.
