Grants up to $5,000 Now Being Offered for Youth-Led Climate Action Projects

Partners for Climate Action has partnered with Bloomberg Philanthropies’ new Youth Climate Action Fund to provide grants for young people, ages 15 – 24,  to design and implement urgent climate solutions.  Award amounts will range between $1,000 to $5,000.

This work was made possible through the support of the Youth Climate Action Fund, a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies in partnership with United  Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the Bloomberg Center for Public Innovation (BCPI) at Johns Hopkins University.

We are committed to distributing at least 40% of our resources to projects situated in NYS Disadvantaged Communities; projects applying from these communities are especially encouraged.
