James Cary Smith Community Grants

The Air District is offering $250,000 to non-profit partners and community-based organizations to support and sponsor community-based solutions that address air pollution while also helping reduce our global climate impact. Grants of up to $25,000 per project will be awarded. Grant funding is available to support air quality education and engagement efforts. These grants will fund non-technical activities such as active transportation educational campaigns, urban greening projects, and environmental justice community engagement projects.

These grants will serve to encourage collaborative partnerships between the Air District and community-based organizations in air pollution reduction. Applicants located in AB 617 communities (i.e., identified high cumulative exposure burden areas), or projects that address an environmental justice issue will be prioritized for funding.
