REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS – Environmental Justice Community Participation Fund Grant
The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is excited to announce the formation of an Environmental Justice Community Participation Fund Grant program. The aim of this program is to award a $400,000 pass-through grant to a statewide community-based environmental justice organization for the creation of an Environmental Justice Community Participation Fund. This Fund will be used to allocate smaller sub-grants to other community-based organizations around Washington State to support meaningful participation and engagement with the Environmental Justice Council and state agencies around the Healthy Environment for All (HEAL) Act.
The Request for Applications (RFA) for the Environmental Justice Community Participation Fund Grant is now available! We are accepting applications until 9pm PST on Friday, December 2nd, and expect to announce a grantee by early 2023.
RFA is available here: Environmental Justice Community Engagement | Washington State Department of Health
We will also be holding a one-hour informational call from 6-7pm PST on Monday, November 7th, over Zoom. This call will include a brief overview of the grant and application requirements, as well as time for question and answer. A recording of this call will be sent to all registrants and will be posted on the DOH Environmental Justice Community Engagement webpage within 2-3 days.
Register for the informational call here:
