Thanks to TURI's commitment to getting non-toxic cleaners in the hands of people, we were able to use grant funds to give 650 people non-toxic cleaners to take home and try. We consider this a very effective component of our work.

Proposals for this year are due on June 30, 2014. Please sign up for our electronic mailings to receive the request for proposals for next year. Also follow us on Facebook to receive updates.

Each year, TURI invites proposals from community organizations, municipal departments, small businesses, trade associations, and regional and state-wide organizations or collaborative groups that raise awareness and educate people about safer alternatives to toxic chemicals.

What TURI Funds

The Toxics Use Reduction Institute awards grants to community organizations, municipal departments and small businesses to encourage people to switch to safer alternatives or methods. We fund trainings, workshops, material development and the purchase of safer products.
