The Greater New Haven Green Fund (GNHGF) promotes environmental quality and equity in the most environmentally distressed communities within the Greater New Haven area by providing local, small grants to reduce pollution and create a more sustainable future. The Fund is seeking grant proposals for creative community based initiatives that impact water and air pollution, as well as land conservation, sustainability, environmental education and youth leadership.

This year the Green Fund is particularly interested in encouraging small grants of a maximum amount of $3,000 from grassroots organizations and has carved out $18,000 of the total  $48,000 to be used for this purpose; $10,000 for small grants and $8,000 for micro grants.  These smaller grants can be used for mission support and organizational capacity building as well as other projects that fit the priority areas of the Fund.  

The Green Fund will also be awarding $10,000  from the Community Benefits Agreement with the Public Services Enterprise Group, Inc. (PSEG) owner of the Harbor Power Plant in New Haven.  The Fund seeks innovative proposals for activities that advance air quality initiatives in the areas of public education and outreach, public health studies, environmental justice and environmental analysis.

The deadline for 2017 grant applications is Thursday, January 12th at 4:00 p.m. Please check out the Greater New Haven Green Fund website at www.gnhgreenfund.org for information and the application forms.  Go to Grants in the Navigation Bar then click on small and large grants to see the link to the application forms.  You may download them from the website.  

The New Haven Green Fund, Inc., a 501c(3) non-profit corporation was incorporated in 2006 and  administered by an independent board representing both local expertise and the communities that comprise the Greater New Haven Water Pollution service area.

A Letter to the White House Announces $11 Million Vaccine Access Fund

In a letter to the Biden-Harris Administration, which has called for corporate America to help in the fight to end the pandemic, the CEOs of Uber, Paypal, Walgreens and LISC announced a new Vaccine Access Fund that will connect people with free rides to COVID-19 vaccine sites. LISC will administer the fund, helping close the gap for thousands of people, many of them seniors and others living in under-resourced communities, who have not been vaccinated yet because of lack of transportation.

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L. Glover details how the fund tackles more than the transportation gap that is keeping tens of thousands of Americans from accessing COVID-19 vaccines. "The fund offers a practical solution to an immediate problem," writes Glover. "But this is absolutely part of our larger efforts to address equity as well."

LISC, Uber, PayPal and Walgreens Introduce Vaccine Access Fund

LISC, PayPal, Uber and Walgreens have announced the launch of their new Vaccine Access Fund, which allows customers to donate to vaccine access efforts to help connect people without transportation to COVID-19 vaccination sites, particularly those in underserved communities. Customers can donate to the Vaccine Access Fund directly through the Uber app using a new donate feature supported by PayPal Giving Fund.
