About this grant

The Midwest Environmental Justice Network — a project of the Minneapolis Foundation — is led by and for community-based organizations in a twelve-state area working to connect and support grassroots groups and diverse leadership to address environmental issues impacting their communities at the local level. With previous Mott Foundation support, the network has been able to increase its communications and outreach and grow its partner engagement on environmental policies and programs. With renewed support, the network will continue to provide financial resources, peer learning, training and capacity building for groups working specifically on water conservation and drinking water access and affordability in the eight-state Great Lakes region.
