for the NAACP Local Action Fund’s Cleaner Energy, Healthy Air, and Economic Opportunity Project
The Tides Foundation is the fiscal sponsor for a project in Michigan to garner support from African Americans for policies to reduce global warming pollution from electricity sources. Tides will work with the state conference of the NAACP to produce a new study on the health and economic benefits in African American communities of implementing recent federal Clean Air Act rules, increased renewable energy, and decreased coal-fired electricity in Michigan. The state NAACP will work with its local chapters and other allies to distribute and publicize the study's findings. This supplemental grant will add $30,000 to the existing 2012 grant of $110,000 to cover unforseen expenses and allow NAACP to take advantage of expanded outreach opportunities.
