Community Grant Opportunity Available

The New York Community Greenworks Initiative is a Department of State (DOS) grant opportunity developed to bridge the gap between low-income New Yorkers and their participation and work in the green technology sector. This program will award one not-for-profit (NFP) organization up to $300,000 to develop a dynamic and effective green sector community development curriculum that teaches a holistic approach to public engagement, green, technology and job training/placement.

The curriculum will be used to train “Green Leaders” to redevelop disadvantaged neighborhoods and transform them into energy-efficient, sustainable communities, with improved living conditions, and a pathway for community members to secure employment in the green technology sector. The awardee will be designated the “New York Community Greenworks Trainer”.

Funding proposals must be delivered by June 15, 2017 by 4:00pm. Electronic or fax copies will not be accepted. Late applications will not be considered.
