From NC State:
“The Community Outreach and Engagement Core (COEC) initiated a brand-new Community Mini Grant program to help nonprofits and community groups across the state address environmental health issues. The Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE) provides funding and technical assistance to enhance the capacity of these groups. This year, grantees received up to $4,500 to collect information, analyze data, and/or conduct outreach and education to address community needs. Congratulations to Clean Air Carolina, Piedmont Environmental Alliance, and Reinvestment Partners whose proposals were selected for funding during the 2016-2017 funding cycle! See the resource below for more information!
When applications closed on August 15, 2016 at 5:00 pm, we were thrilled by the response. In total, 40 groups took part in the application process, and provided great ideas for environmental health projects in their communities.
