Each year, TURI invites proposals from community organizations, municipal departments and regional and state-wide organizations or collaborative groups that raise awareness and educate people about safer alternatives to toxic chemicals. The deadline for this year's proposals has passed. However, we encourage you to discuss project ideas with Felice Kincannon now to prepare for applying for next year's grants. View grant application and funding criteria.
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.
