Neighborhood Climate Resilience Grant Program

At this time, the Office of Sustainability is no longer accepting applications for this program as all funding is tentatively exhausted. For questions or other inquiries, please contact

This program supports the work of non-profit organizations & partners in Richmond on the frontlines of climate change. The Neighborhood Climate Resilience Grant embodies both the spirit of the newly adopted RVAgreen 2050 Climate Equity Action Plan 2030, and Mayor Stoney’s Equity agenda, and is funded through the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

At this time the program has provided over $850,000 to local non-profits. The grants will support the implementation of equity-centered, neighborhood-based planning and climate resilience project implementation here in the City of Richmond. We received over 18 applications, totaling over $1.3 million, and are excited to announce a few of the grantees. Recipients include:  

  • Bridging the Gap 

  • James River Association 

  • Church Hill Trees  

  • Richmond Tree Stewards 

  • Southside Releaf 

  • Chimborazo Native Food Project  

  • The Climate Collaborative
