About this grant

This grant provides support to the State Environmental Leadership Program to assist 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 the budget process. 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 communication activities, technical assistance, and 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.
