Honor the Earth is excited to invite grant proposals from grassroots, community-based organizations and groups with a lack of access to federal and/or tribal funding resources.
Honor the Earth awards grants solely to organizations that are led and managed by Native peoples.
Funding for the building resilience in indigenous communities initiative will focus on two goals:
- To support and forward the development of culturally-based, Indigenous solutions to climate change based on re-localizing food and energy economies;
- To foster restoration of traditional knowledge as a key adaptation and mitigation strategy to ensure a safe and healthy future for the children and the next seven generations.
Honor will grant funds to organizations and projects working in two areas:
- Implementing renewable energy and energy efficiency/weatherization improvements to advance community dignity and energy sovereignty and;
- Creating food security utilizing Indigenous varieties and organic production.
- Grants range from $1,000 to $5,000.
- Honor the Earth awards grants only to organizations with 501(c)(3) status or an equivalent.
- You will be asked to provide proof of this nonprofit or tax-exempt status when applying for a grant. They acknowledge the challenges that smaller, newer groups have in obtaining 501(c)(3) status.
- However, Honor the Earth adheres strictly to this requirement in order to facilitate transparency and accountability.
- If you wish to apply but do not have 501(c)(3) or similar status, a fiscal agent may be used.
