Learn about a grant program for localized areas within the region that experience high concentrations of air pollution. This program encourages community-based solutions that can improve health and help reduce our impact on the global climate.
This program is named for the former Air District Community Outreach Manager who helmed the agency’s initial pilot community grant program in 2009-10. Mr. Smith passed away in 2015 from ALS. The program will provide grants for locally based projects that decrease air pollution while increasing community awareness of and engagement in air quality issues.
For the FY 2015-2016 cycle, a total of $261,274 in community grants was awarded to 11 outstanding applicants. Activities that are being funded include local air pollution mitigation projects, community-based partnerships with local high school and junior high schools, and targeted air quality outreach and education initiatives.
For the 2017 grant cycle, the Air District has set aside $250,000 to focus explicitly on sponsoring community science projects:
Please see the Community Science Grant Program Overview(99 Kb PDF, 3 pgs) and Guidelines(140 Kb PDF, 7 pgs) for specific information on how to apply. Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis and will be open until March 31, 2017, or until funding is expended.
Air District staff will be holding a Community Science Grant Program workshop on Thursday, October 20, from 5:00PM - 6:30PM in the Ohlone Room of the Air District's Metro Center headquarters, where prospective applicants can ask questions and bring their proposals.
