Apply for a Carbon Fund Grant

Our Info Session, covering the basics of the application and answering frequently asked questions, is available on our homepage.

Please note: The Carbon Fund is unable to directly grant money to outside entities. Any community municipality, business, or organization interested in submitting for a Carbon Fund grant will need to have a sponsoring UCSC department. That department must commit to receiving the grant and completing all necessary paperwork required to hire the outside entity as a contractor. Per UC policy, contractors cannot be hired to complete work that could otherwise be completed by UCSC employees. 

For instructions on how to complete and submit the application, please see the Applicant Guide.

Please feel free to contact the Carbon Fund staff at any time for help with your project proposal. We can set up a one on one Zoom meeting to discuss your project or answer any outstanding questions you may have.
