Thank you for your interest in training Tacoma’s next generation of local climate justice leaders through this $50,000 Grant opportunity! 

 

Coordinator Role

Inspired by community input and the 2030 Tacoma Climate Action Plan (CAP), this two-year program will work with partners to train a minimum of two cohorts made up of frontline community members to engage with City staff and elected officials and take climate action during 2023 and 2024. The coordinator will collaborate with the City of Tacoma Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability, the primary City partner, in implementation decision-making. The program will educate frontline community members about local climate impacts, emissions sources, and actions. In addition, the program will train frontline community members to understand and leverage civic engagement strategies and tools to navigate local public decision-making processes organized by the City and, to a lesser extent, other local public organizations. Focusing on civic engagement through advocacy and community outreach, the program is meant to foster relationships, support individual development, and connect community issues, services, and efforts.


Fostering relationships begins with a grant partnership that will coordinate this program with the City of Tacoma’s Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability.


The first year of this program will be implemented between January 3 and December 31, 2023.

The second year of this program will be implemented between January 1 and December 31, 2024.


The Grant Coordinator Application deadline is Sunday, January 29, 2023, 11:59 PM.
