About this grant

Established in 1970, the Ecology Center works locally, statewide, and nationally on a range of issues including clean energy, toxic-free materials, and sustainable food systems. With prior Mott support, the grantee worked with K-12 schools across Michigan to reduce energy use and adopt renewable energy systems by building and expanding a network of schools and launching a pilot technical assistance program. With renewed support, the grantee will expand its technical assistance; increase outreach by distributing materials, sharing case studies, and engaging additional school stakeholders; and develop a strategy to evolve the program into a self-sustaining social enterprise.
