The Equitable Community Revitalization Grant application is LIVE, and we’re here to help!
Applications are now being accepted for grant funding to help California units of government, non-profit organizations and Tribes assess, clean up and reuse idled and contaminated properties in the state’s environmental justice communities.
The Equitable Community Revitalization Grant program, administered by the California Department of Toxic Substance Control’s Office of Brownfields, will make grants up to $7 million to California units of government, nonprofit organizations and Tribes for the assessment, cleanup and reuse of properties, with an emphasis on helping high environmental justice communities.
CCLR offers no-cost, no-obligation assistance to potential applicants, both one-on-one and in groups, in-person, and online. Our goal is to help applicants succeed, because success means cleaner, healthier California communities.
Applications will be accepted through April 4, 2022. Don’t miss this unique opportunity for grant assistance to clean up and revitalize our communities. Our experts are ready to help. Get started on your application today!
