The New England Grassroots Environment Fund energizes and nurtures long-term civic engagement in local initiatives that create and maintain healthy, just, safe and sustainable communities using stories, tools and dollars to fuel local activism and social change. Since 1996, the Grassroots Fund’s core grant making program continues to fund nearly 150 grants annually, giving more than $4 million in 20 years to more than 2,000 community groups and initiatives covering more than 60 percent of New England’s cities and towns. For more information, please visit grassrootsfund.org or call 603-905-9915.
The grant will be used to cover start-up expenses. Says Kaat Vander Straeten, who is a main coordinator for MassEnergize, “to get us started”. MassEnergize has already started spreading the word, and their interactive website, www.massenergize.org, is currently in the beta testing phase.
