Initiatives Addressing Toxic Chemicals in Minority Communities Funded
The Cedar Tree Foundation is dedicated to addressing a broad range of environmental issues within the United States. In 2019, the Foundation’s Children’s Environmental Health Initiative will support nonprofit organizations working in communities of color to protect and improve children’s health by focusing on exposures to toxic chemicals in products and the environment. Special consideration will be given to organizations whose leadership (staff and board) and programs reflect the communities they serve, with a priority placed on organizations led by people of color. Applicants must have an organizational budget between $250,000 and $10 million. Grants will range from $70,000 to $100,000 per year, for three years.
Online Letter of Inquiry Forms are due July 12, 2019; full proposals will be invited in the early fall.
