ECO Broward

We seek to counteract the negative effects of climate change on Broward to make our community a resilient and sustainable place to live. The Foundation is looking for strategic approaches to counteract the effects of climate change that align with the Broward County Climate Action Plan. Think outside the box and submit your best and most creative proposal that will demonstrate measurable outcomes in one or more of the following environmental areas:

Coastal Resilience:

Restore our coastline and improve coastal resiliency to prevent beach erosion, which will preserve indigenous plants, animals and also help protect communities from flooding.

Habitat Protection:

Increase the tree canopy to counteract rising temperatures, and keep our air clean, provide shade and habitat, increase property value and help cool urban landscapes.

Preserve natural habitats and ecosystems by removing invasive species of plants and animals that deteriorate our natural, livable environments.

Energy Consumption:

Increase solar panel usage for residential and businesses.

Create more energy efficient homes and buildings.

Water Quality:

Create clean, uncontaminated waterways that sustain estuaries and marine fisheries habitats.

Prevent saltwater intrusion and adopt strategies to ensure we have fresh, quality drinking water.

Application Information

To meet the needs of the community during the coronavirus crisis, the Community Foundation of Broward has changed our usual grantmaking process to get resources where they are needed the most as quickly as possible. As a result:

  1. Grants may be renewed or awarded based on pressing community needs, without an RFP process.
  2. Grant applications to fill targeted gaps in community services may be offered by invitation only, via email invitations.
  3. Updated guidelines and outcomes to be achieved will be provided when a new RFP cycle opens up. We are not accepting applications under this area at this time.
