WHAT IS A RESILIENCE HUB?

STARTING YOUR RESILIENCE HUB

MINI GRANT PROGRAM

This fund is designed to kickstart small climate projects and community building. This ties into the resilience hub initiative where community based organizations act as hubs for the neighborhoods and help to equitably meet local needs through trust and empowerment. To be eligible to apply, organizations must have previously participated in the NorCal Resilience Hub Leadership program or have actively engaged with BayREN or Alameda County’s Green Business Program. Grant awards are available between $1000-$2500 towards items such as:  small appliances, program materials, stipends, or other administrative staff time. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and the Sustainability Office will work with selected applicants to ensure success of their projects. 

For 2023, there is a limited opportunity funding opportunity through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) for an additional $10,000 per site to fund resilience hub activities. Reach out to the Sustainability Office to discuss project ideas and apply thru the application link below.
