Orange County's Sustainable Communities Grant Program's intent is to provide funding to support and assist neighborhoods and organizations working on reducing pollution and carbon footprint. A sustainable community is one that is economically, environmentally and socially healthy and resilient. By working together, we enhance the quality of life for current and future generations.
Funding is available in the form of grants to help neighborhoods stay safe, healthy and connected. Grants are available for projects ranging from $500 - $5,000. Eligible projects can address issues such as lighting, watering, community gardens, electricity generation and pollution reduction. Events are also encouraged to help teach community members about energy efficiency, pollution reduction, and green and sustainable practices.
