This grant program will support projects that help groups move toward their goals by building leadership, increasing capacity and/or providing training and education. A priority of CHEJ’s Small Grants Program is to help grassroots community groups to build their capacity. The program is designed to especially reach people from low wealth communities and communities of color who are impacted by environmental harms.

Grant activities can include board development, membership outreach, and fundraising efforts. Project activities could also include holding meetings to develop an organizing/strategic plan, training leaders to go door-to-door, events or educational activities which are directly connected to strategic plan, or general events.  It is recommended that project activities be creative, effective and strategic.
