About this grant

This grant provides support to the State Environmental Leadership Program to engage state and local environmental groups in broad-based efforts to inform policymakers, the media, and the public about the federal deficit and implications of various proposals designed to reduce the budget deficit and/or reform budget processes. Ultimately, the goal of these efforts is to ensure that sufficient federal resources will be available in the short and long term to address key social priorities in our country. The grantee will use Mott funds to support communications activities and technical assistance, and to provide small grants to a select number of its member organizations. The State Environmental Leadership Program is a nationwide network of over 50 independent, nonprofit, public interest, multi-issue, environmental advocacy organizations that work to effect strong state environmental protection policies.
