Implementing Justice 40 with Environmental Justice Thriving Communities and #EJ Ready
February 16 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) selected 11 Environmental Justice Thriving Communities Grantmakers to receive $600 million as pass-through entities to provide subgrants to community-based nonprofits and other eligible subrecipients. One emerging program directly related to this EPA funding is the #EJ Ready Initiative, which is surveying the landscape for related opportunities, providing critical technical assistance to community-led organizations on the ground, and leveraging the power of the network through convenings.
At this upcoming SCG Environmental Funders Group meeting, participants will hear from local leadership engaged in implementing the EPA’s EJ Thriving Communities Grantmaking Program and #EJ Ready. We will also explore multiple options for philanthropy to support these and related initiatives to ensure equitable implementation of public funding.
