CDC Foundation invites applications from youth-focused organizations for awareness of health impacts of climate change

The CDC Foundation helps the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) save and improve lives by unleashing the power of collaboration between CDC, philanthropies, corporations, organizations, and individuals to protect the health, safety, and security of America and the world.

To that end, the foundation has issued a request for proposals from youth-focused organizations interested in engaging young people in raising awareness of the health impacts of climate change and helping communities take steps to prepare for and mitigate the effects. The foundation will fund a wide range of strategies and activities, but more specifically, seeks proposals for projects that promote awareness of climate change and the corresponding health impacts within their community, promote actionable solutions to reduce impact of climate change on health, and create pathways for meaningful partnerships and participation of young people.

For the purposes of this RFP, the terms “youth” and “young people” refer to individuals between the ages of 15 and 24 years old. Successful applicants will have existing connections to underserved communities that are most vulnerable to climate change. Priority consideration will be given to eligible youth-led and/or minority-led organizations.

The foundation intends to make 10 to 15 awards ranging between $25,000 and $50,000.

To be eligible, applicants must be nonprofit tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) or qualify for exemption under an IRS code other than 501(c)(3), and headquartered in the United States.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the CDC Foundation website.

Deadline: December 19, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. ET
