Hi Everyone,
Here's something of interest that I thought I'd pass along. As always,
please respond to the organizations noted, NOT to me ;-)

Keep abreast of potential sources of financing for sustainability projects
relating to energy use. Learn more at

Some(but not all) of the funding opps listed at this website include:

1. HHS Community Economic Development Program

The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a Request for
Applications for the Office of Community Services' Fiscal Year 2002
Community Economic Development Program. These grants provide technical and
financial assistance for economic development activities designed to address
the economic needs of low-income individuals and families by creating
employment and business ownership opportunities. An eligible applicant must
be a private, non-profit Community Development Corporation. Approximately
$25,000,000 is available for FY 2002. Applications must be received by July
12, 2002.

 2. Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance Open Grant Round

The Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance is soliciting proposals
under its open grant round. OEA awards money to organizations to help them
move toward more sustainable practices, specifically for pollution
prevention, recycling market development, environmental education,
sustainable communities development and/or resource recovery. OEA grants are
to be used as seed money for new programs and projects, to support and
showcase local efforts, to transfer technology and results to others in
Minnesota, and to challenge and support innovation. The maximum Open Grant
award is $75,000 and a minimum one-to-one match is required. Due to state
budget issues, the amount of any grant award made under this RFP and the
timing of grant awards are uncertain at this time. Pre-proposals are
December 31, 2002.


3. Sacramento Earth Day Youth Project Grants

The Sacramento Area Earth Day Network is sponsoring K-12 Earth Day Youth
Project grants. The program provides financial support for K-12 classrooms,
school clubs and community youth groups within Sacramento County,
California, to conduct an Earth Day project of their choice that brings some
element of sustainable living to the classroom, school, or community. Grants
up to $500 may be awarded. Proposals must be postmarked by July 26, 2002.
