The Center for Community Change is a comprehensive technical assistance provider to grassroots community groups in low-income areas, providing hands-on technical assistance in community development, community organizing, organizational development, and public policy support to communities throughout the United States. This general purposes grant supports the grantee’s work in assisting grassroots community-based groups in their work on pressing employment and education strategies that can positively impact the lives of individuals and families struggling to escape and avoid the challenges of poverty.
Michigan is still in the relatively early stages of the clean energy transition. Tools and technical assistance are needed to help early adopters navigate a range of financial and market barriers. With partial support from Mott, Michigan Saves will develop two such tools: an on-bill financing program for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements, and an energy savings reporting system for nonprofits engaged in promoting the adoption of energy efficiency measures. Michigan Saves is a statewide organization that provides affordable financing options for home owners, businesses, and local governments that want to adopt energy efficiency and renewable energy practices.
The Mott Foundation, through its four grantmaking programs, funds a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and projects throughout the United States, which together receive about three quarters of the Foundation’s grant funds each year.
