Funding opportunity: Climate & Cultural Resilience Grants
Projects may be at the building or neighborhood scale and can range from planning to implementation. Examples of projects from other communities include: • stormwater infrastructure with artistic and educational public elements • community-driven cultural asset mapping for neighborhood resilience plan • creation and installation of a solar powered neighborhood utility • rain barrel builds to capture rainwater and reduce flooding • maker festival that initiates formation of a neighbor-to-neighbor network • build-a-bike workshops to increase carbon-neutral mobility • community collaborations that address resilient food systems
Climate and Cultural Resilience Grants will support five organizations to use arts and culture and community-engagement in a climate resilience project at the building or neighborhood scale.
