RISE Eco Grants

What are Eco Grants?

Grades of Green Eco Grants are funding prizes ranging from $250 to $1,000 awarded to the most impactful teams from the RISE Climate Solutions Campaign. The most impactful teams will have their projects sent to a panel of experts in sustainability to decide the winners of Eco Grants each program year. Eco Grants are designed to be used to further a team’s environmental impact in their community!
