Albemarle offering $100K in grants for Climate Action
Do you work for a group that may have a project that you think could demonstrate ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? Albemarle County has announced a grant program to encourage innovation as a way to meet the goals to reduce emissions from fossil fuels to zero by 2050.
“Projects can contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in transportation, buildings, waste, agriculture, and natural areas,” reads the website. “Projects can also contribute to increasing carbon sequestration in agriculture or natural systems.”
Eligible organizations or groups must be physically located in Albemarle County. Grants will be between $5,000 and $25,000. The idea comes from other communities where examples include bike racks, energy efficient windows, or enhanced recycling. The application deadline is April 30. Visit the Albemarle County website for more information.
