An annual grant program for community groups and educators to address environmental health.
The Community Grant program helps groups across the state address environmental health issues in their communities. While any secondary school educators, nonprofits, and community organizations can collaborate and apply, funds can only be released to 501 c3 status organizations.
Funding may be used for one year of research, data analysis, community engagement, citizen science, education or evaluation related to a local environmental health issue. More than 80 community-based groups and educators from across the state have applied to the CHHE Community Grant Program. Information on those selected for funding can be seen below.
Grantees may receive up to $8,000 and preference may be given to groups whose projects directly align with CHHE research. Funding will be on an annual basis, with applications due mid-late September.
