Richmond’s new Environmental Enhancement Grant launches on December 9
07 December 2021
The City of Richmond is calling all non-profit organizations to apply for Richmond’s Environmental Enhancement Grant. This new City grant will help empower local community groups to take positive action on the environment by supporting their sustainable initiatives such as shoreline clean-ups, invasive species pulls, and tree and shrub planting. Grant applications will be accepted from Thursday, December 9 to Wednesday, January 26.
“Access to nature and healthy, local ecosystems can improve our quality of life—and Richmond residents are a pivotal component of effective environmental stewardship,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “The new City of Richmond Environmental Enhancement Grant will enable registered non-profit organizations, and the businesses and individuals who collaborate with them, to organize events that contribute to enhancing, restoring and conserving Richmond’s natural environment.”
The Environmental Enhancement Grant, which complements other existing City environmental initiatives, aims at assisting non-profit organizations in carrying out local action-based projects that have measurable, positive impacts on the environment in Richmond.
While the grant is only accessible to non-profit organizations, the City encourages private businesses and individuals to work with these community groups to identify and organize environmental activities in their neighbourhoods.
