Climate change grants

Santa Clara County is awarding up to $80,000 in funding to support community-based climate change mitigation and adaptation activities focused on extreme heat and poor air quality. The funding will help communities that suffer disproportionately because of poorer air quality and extreme heat.

Nonprofit organizations can apply for individual grants of up to $8,000, but only one application per organization is allowed. Applicants must be currently based in or primarily serve residents of Santa Clara County.

Proposed projects must focus on serving at least one of the following vulnerable populations in Santa Clara County: young children, pregnant people, older adults, low-income people and families, outdoor workers, unsheltered individuals, people with disabilities, many communities of color and individuals with existing chronic health conditions.

Applications are open now and due by 5 p.m. on Sept. 15. For a full list of criteria and to submit applications, visit https://publichealth.sccgov.org/health-information/climate-and-health.
