People's Climate March Grant

Citizens Committee for New York City is awarding grants of up to $500 to neighborhood groups organizing to take part in the historic People’s Climate March on September 21, 2014.

The climate affects everything from what we eat to the quality of air we breathe. And the climate is changing in a dangerous way. The reason is carbon pollution. This is a fact. Hurricane Sandy warned us to pay attention. And to take action, before it’s too late.

In September, world leaders are coming to NYC for a United Nations summit on the climate crisis. The UN Secretary­ General is urging governments to support an agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution. The People’s Climate March will send a clear message to them that we are watching and that we expect them to sign the agreement.

Over 700 organizations have already signed on to march. Be a part of history. Get involved. Apply for a grant to organize your community for the march. Nothing less than our future is at stake.

Applications are now closed. Thank you to all those who applied, we hope to see you at the march on September 21.
