Below we have gathered three grants that focus on energy and environmental causes.

  Insider Tip: Check local utility companies for specific state and local energy grants  

Hewlett Foundation

The Hewlett Foundation has an environment grant program that is twofold. The climate an9669084653_5b5d01b333_m.jpgd energy grant program, which is available globally, includes a focus on clean transportation. The foundation also offers a western conservation grant program focusing on land, water, and energy in the western United States and Canada. In both programs, the vast majority of grants are made to organizations that work with police developments. The Hewlitt Foundation provides general operating support in addition to project support. The application process begins with a letter of inquiry followed by a full proposal if the letter is accepted. In July, Trout Unlimited was awarded $4 million for the Western Water Project and Land Conservation Initiative. Letters of intent are accepted year-round.

Patagonia

Patagonia is interested in making grants to organizations that identify and work on the root causes of environmental problems and commit to long-term change. Priority is given to organizations that have strong citizen support. The aim is to give support to local groups protecting local habitats through original actions. It is through those local efforts that Patagonia hopes to illuminate and solve more complicated issues. This foundation likes to “fund groups off the beaten path.” Non-profit organizations are eligible to apply. Grant amounts normally range from $5,000-$20,000. Grants are accepted twice yearly: April 30 and Aug. 31.

REAP

This United States Department of Agriculture grant program is called the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP). Funding provides guaranteed loan financing and grant funding to agricultural producers and rural small businesses for renewable energy systems and for energy efficiency improvements. Eligible applicants are agricultural producers and small businesses in certain rural areas. Funds may be used for renewable energy systems or the purchase, installation, and construction of energy efficiency improvements. Renewable energy system grants range from $2,500-$500,000 and energy efficiency grants can be $1,500-$250,000. Applications are accepted year-round.
