Grants for Climate and Environmental Justice Initiatives

Coming in 2024


The Environmental Protection Agency has selected Health Resources in Action (HRiA) to implement the Environmental Justice Thriving Communities Grantmaking program (TCGM) for New England, in partnership with Alternatives for Community & Environment, Inc. (ACE) and New England Grassroots Environmental Fund (Grassroots Fund). We aim to counter historical disinvestment in communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis including communities of color, immigrant communities, indigenous communities, and low-income communities. This opportunity seeks to seed and build deeper capacity for a sustainable environmental justice movement to address environmental hazards, climate resiliency, and energy justice, and build livable and healthy communities. This funding, which includes $40 million in grants over three years, comes as an effort by the Biden-Harris Administration to strip away traditional barriers communities have faced in applying for federal grants.

Core partners

HRiA, ACE, and the Grassroots Fund anticipate opening this funding opportunity in Fall 2024. Our TCGM program will provide subawards to community-based organizations (CBOs), EJ organizations, nonprofits, and other entities representing underserved, urban, rural, indigenous, remote, and capacity-constrained communities in implementing projects to address local environmental and/or public health challenges across Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
