Grant Opportunities:
ECO Broward

We seek proposals for innovative actions with measurable outcomes to positively impact our environment. We are looking for opportunities to support habitat protection, coastal resilience, water quality, energy efficiency, environmental outreach and more. For example, proposals can:

  • Clean up our waterways and shorelines, which provide critical marine habitat that supports our fisheries.
  • Plant mangroves and other coastal vegetation to improve marine habitat, reduce beach erosion and also help protect communities from flooding.
  • Plant inland trees and increase greenery in cities to counteract rising temperatures and clean our air.
  • Protect and preserve marine habitat, which supports sea turtles and our local fisheries.
  • Protect coral reefs and create more artificial reefs to expand marine habitat.
  • Reduce/recycle single-use plastics, which often end up polluting local waterways.
  • Increase solar panel usage to create more energy-efficient homes and businesses.
  • Encourage water conservation strategies to help reduce saltwater intrusion from sea-level rise and ensure we have fresh, quality drinking water.
  • Engage and educate residents about any of the above issues and beyond that can protect our natural areas, make our community more resilient to climate change and inspire more local eco-stewards.
