Grant Program

One way that Growing Green Communities fulfills its goals is by assisting other allied organizations with grant funding. Organizations offering education, environmental improvements or other related initiatives may apply by submitting a letter requesting the funding and demonstrating how the initiative will help achieve our goals. Guidelines for submitting your letter of application are provided below, as well as the requirement for a follow up report documenting the success of the initiative.

Because funds are limited, Growing Green Communities isn’t able to fund all requests submitted. Each request is evaluated on overall impact, alignment with our goals and with the Grant Program guidelines. Preference will be given to initiatives impacting Central Iowa.

Examples of initiatives supported by Growing Green Communities include:
