Community Grants

The TURI Community Grant program helps organizations create and promote healthier communities in Massachusetts by educating people about safer alternatives. The maximum award amount for regional or statewide projects is $20,000. The maximum award amount for local projects is $10,000.

This year's deadline for applications has passed. Contact Rachel Massey or Felice Kincannon with questions or to discuss your future project ideas.

Please note: Grant funding is limited, and awards are contingent on the funding received by TURI in the new fiscal year (beginning July 1, 2020). TURI will make every effort to award grants as in past years; however, it is possible that funds available and the timing of the grants could be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to criteria included in the RFP, TURI will prioritize projects that respond to the challenges, changing circumstances, and opportunities for toxics use reduction created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
