The next round of Community Grants is out now!

Applications Due: September 18 at 5:00pm 

The Community Grant program helps educators, nonprofits, and community groups across the state address environmental health issues in their communities. CHHE provides funding and technical assistance to enhance the capacity of these groups. Grantees may receive up to $8,000 for projects that engage their communities, collect information, analyze data, support citizen science, and/or conduct education to address clear community needs related to environmental health. Preference may be given to groups whose projects directly align with CHHE research. 

This year, to enhance the capacity of interested community-based organizations, we will be hosting online Grant Writing and Program Evaluation. Click here for more information.
