Applications are open for the Justice40 Accelerator cohort

Communities at the frontlines of climate, environmental, and social injustices have the wisdom and the solutions to create transformational change. Historic structural racism and bureaucratic inadequacies have often led to a lack of access to the capacity and resources needed to implement their community-driven solutions. With the Biden-Harris Administration’s Justice40 commitment and the unprecedented public funding flowing from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Act, the Inflation Reduction Act, and other federal initiatives, the Justice40 Accelerator aims for organizations from under invested communities to be informed, inspired, and equipped to navigate the public funding space so that public money can flow to communities who need it.

Mark your calendars and join one of the the information webinars on Thursday, June 8 at 4 p.m. ET or Thursday, June 15 at 1 p.m. ET to get more information about the 12-month cohort experience and how you can connect your community to the millions of dollars of funding available through the Justice40 Initiative!

Since 2021, over one hundred grassroots organizations have learned how to successfully tap into the benefits of the Justice40 Initiative to get funding for their climate justice solutions. Now in its third year, the Justice40 Accelerator is ready to support the next cohort of community-based, community-led organizations that are ready to advance their work on the frontlines. In addition to a $25,000 unrestricted grant to support participation, Accelerator members will receive in-depth training on public grant requirements, learn best practices for submitting federal project proposals, have direct access to technical assistance, become a part of a network of climate justice activists, and more!

Applications are due July 31, 2023.
