Climate Action That Meets Community Needs
Greenlining the Block works to strengthen community-based organizations to advance climate justice neighborhood projects. To reverse decades of disinvestment and racist policies, we are doubling-down on community ownership of solutions. In January 2023, The Greenlining Institute kicked off a multi-year initiative called Greenlining the Block by welcoming its first cohort of community-based partners.
Meet the First Cohort of Greenlining The Block
For the first round of the Greenlining the Block initiative, Greenlining is providing direct capacity building annual grants, support tailored capacity building and other technical assistance, and facilitate peer-to-peer learning through a Community of Practice alongside eight partner organizations in California, Illinois, and Michigan.
Partner organizations are working on a broad range of shovel-worthy projects aiming to address local public health concerns while meeting the environmental, economic and transportation needs of residents.
