2010-2011 Minneapolis Climate Change Grants

Based on the success of climate change grants provided since 2007, in 2011 the City of Minneapolis again provided grants to help Minneapolis residents take steps to save energy and support clean energy in their neighborhoods. Neighborhood, business, and faith-based associations were eligible to apply for the grants, along with other non-profits, libraries, park and recreational centers, and other public organizations that serve Minneapolis residents and businesses.

The grants were made possible thanks to federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding that the City of Minneapolis received for a variety of energy efficiency projects.

Grant details:

This year’s eight grant recipients included neighborhood and business groups, a school, and non-profit organizations. For more information, read an overview of the 2010-2011 climate change grants (pdf).

All grantees were required to promote the Minnesota Energy Challenge, an interactive website to calculate an individual’s carbon dioxide footprint, energy saving opportunities and commit to making positive changes.
