Meet our Energy Equity Grantees

In 2021, Climate Nexus launched an Energy Equity Regranting Project to help resource organizations, tribes, and community leaders on the frontlines of climate change and the impactful work they are doing to fight the gas industry. The energy equity transition grants prioritizes grassroots groups with an annual budget of $1 million or less to boost their efforts in racially, ethnically, gender, and culturally diverse communities across the United States and at the intersections of public health and energy justice.

Since its start, the program has grown to support 24 communities, grassroots organizations, tribes, and faith groups across 14 states. We hope you’ll check out their amazing work, below.
