Grant Purpose

GreenLatinos seeks to launch a pilot micro-grant program to support local organizations working in frontline communities impacted by climate-related flooding. Through this RFP, GreenLatinos will identify two to three (2-3) community leaders or organizations working locally to educate, mobilize, or train latinx communities to advocate for equitable policy making, actions and solutions that address the impacts of climate exacerbated flooding in the U.S. The organizations or community leaders may be working on this critical environmental justice issue in a variety of spaces, such as (but not limited to) community preparedness, public health impacts, resilient infrastructure, and partnership building.

Based on the financial resources needed and timeframes of the project proposed, GreenLatinos intends to provide grants ranging from $8,000 to $16,000 for timetables ranging from 12 to 24 months, depending on the proposed activities. Our goal is to provide flexibility and resources to community-based organizations already working on climate-related flooding issues. GreenLatinos will also provide staff support from our Clean and Healthy Waters Program Manager for planning, policy research, production of communications materials, and more, to support the proposed activities.

Priority is given to projects that are realistic, thoughtful, and beneficial. Emphasis will also be placed on the project’s ability to be replicated, and to be showcased as a best practice for the tangible benefit of others. Lastly, priority will be given to proposals where other resources and relationships have been leveraged.
