Apply for a Carbon Fund Grant

The Fall Carbon Fund grant cycle will be annouced in October. 

Our Info Session, covering the basics of the application and answering frequently asked questions, is available here

Please note: UCSC 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. 

If you have questions regarding your application, or wish to submit one in the future, check out our Applicant Guide!

Or, feel free to contact the Carbon Fund staff at any time for help with your project proposal. We have office hours on Mondays from 12:30-1:30 PM, and are available via e-mail at
