The Bullard Center Wins $50 million Thriving Communities Grantmaker Award with WFG’s Help

Writing for Green’s Courtenay Strickland was the lead writer, and thought partner, for this project, collaborating with The Bullard Center for Environmental and Climate Justice (BCECJ) to create a winning proposal for the Environmental Justice Thriving Communities Grantmaking (EJ TCGM) program. The project – which BCECJ will implement in partnership with Houston-based Achieving Community Tasks Successfully (ACTS) – will implement a grant-making program which will award more than $40 million in grants to non-profit organizations working to advance environmental justice and public health in the EPA’s Region 6. A key objective will be to remove barriers to federal funding for frontline organizations, making it easier for them to implement their work in the communities that are often disproportionately affected by environmental degradation, harms from climate change, and the attendant public health challenges. As a secondary objective, the program will provide a level of technical assistance and expertise that will maximize the impact of subrecipients’ funded projects. The grantmaking project will make ~232 grants; the primary outcomes targeted through this initiative are that CBOs working in the EJ space in underserved communities report increased capacity as a result of the funding, as well as improved environmental/public health conditions in the communities they serve.
