The City of Tacoma sent us this ditty:

The Sustainable Tacoma Grant offers up to $5,000 through the City of Tacoma's Office of Sustainability to any non-profit or educational institution planning a project related to sustainable development and climate change mitigation.

Tie-ins with Tacoma's Climate Action Plan, found here, are encouraged. Key strategies in that plan include transportation/fuel reduction, energy conservation, waste reduction/recycling, and smart land use/ livable neighborhoods.

Applications must be emailed or post-marked by Oct. 29, 2010.

Some possible projects might include developing a walking schoolbus program, school and urban agriculture projects, installing a passive thermal solar water heater, planting example street trees with informational signage, creating a YouTube video to educate citizens on recycling in Tacoma, conducting a tap water vs. bottled water taste-off, and installing recycling stations at a local middle school.
