Green Building Training Grants

Posted by on January 25, 2010

‘Green Building’ Training Grants are Now Available To Your College or University

Second Nature (, a nonprofit organization focused on sustainability in the higher education sector, is pleased to invite your institution to apply for a technical assistance grant of up to $2000 to provide the building professionals who work on your campus facilities projects with training in ‘green building.’ As you probably know, green or sustainable building and renovation can substantially decrease pollution, waste, and costs.

The primary goal of this capacity-building program, funded by The Kresge Foundation, is to assist under-resourced institutions in pursuing climate neutrality by increasing the green building competence of local and regional consultants working on campus bricks and mortar and retrofit projects. Once more contractors receive training in ‘green building,’ we expect this program will also decrease the premiums they charge for campus green building projects.

Any school that has received Title III/V designation by the Department of Education is invited to apply.

Awardee institutions will nominate at least one external building professional (e.g. construction contractors, architects, designers, engineers) who will select among green building training opportunities, such as workshops and conferences, that meet the requirements of the program. For Grant Guidelines, Application Forms and more detailed information about the Campus Green Building 101 Technical Assistance Grants, visit The deadline for applications is February 12, 2010.
