for Greenlining the Block
The Greenlining Institute works to support low- and middle-income communities in California, Michigan, Illinois, Virginia, Colorado, and North Carolina in pursuing community-driven climate action projects across the country and unlocking resources available as a result of federal climate investment legislation. This grant for their Greenlining the Block initiative will strengthen local coalitions to effectively pursue and access public and private climate resources. Greenlining will support local organizations to cultivate productive multisectoral partnerships grounded in community needs; support organizations to connect the dots across multiple financing streams; and directly support community capacity with tailored planning, project management, and technical expertise to realize community projects.

for organizing a statewide conversation about California's ballot initiative process
With this grant, the Greenlining Institute would convene a statewide conversation about California’s ballot initiative process, with a particular emphasis to involve a significant number of diverse Californians. In addition to educating voters about the current ballot initiative process, the project will allow the Institute to obtain better information about what voters think and identify a potential set of reforms. The ultimate goal is to develop a strategy to reform California’s ballot initiative process that will lead to a healthier and more sustainable state. The Institute leads Greenlining Coalition, a coalition of forty multi-ethnic and community-based organizations across the state to act on a variety of issues and, as such, is well poised to lead this project.
