From creating healthier, higher performing classrooms, to making veterans’ homes more energy efficient, to expanding staff and volunteer capacity, USGBC chapters across the network are advancing sustainability in their communities through diverse, replicable initiatives supported by grants from USGBC.
Impact Grants are matching grants that fund the development of impactful chapter programming, with a focus on projects that are inspirational, innovative, measurable and replicable across the chapter network. Chapter programs are funded in the areas of Diversity and Inclusion, Advocacy, Green Schools, Green Homes, and LEED and Performance.
Capacity Building Grants
Capacity Building Grants are matching grants to provide start-up funding for a new staff position, providing USGBC chapters even more capacity to be effective, self-sustaining organizations within the communities they serve.
Strategic Investment Grants
Strategic Investment Grants are non-matching grants to fund strategic hires in USGBC chapters that demonstrate a capacity to utilize the hire as a catalyst to greatly expand their impact in their region and reach new markets and diverse audiences previously untapped by the USGBC chapter network.
