About this grant

Founded in 1970, the Ecology Center is a national environmental organization that is based in Michigan. The grantee seeks to encourage energy efficiencies as a way to address urban environmental impacts while improving the quality of life for families.

With this grant increase, the grantee will research how state and municipal energy policies could help reduce carbon pollution and lower heating expenses for low-income households.
