Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors - Gulf Coast Fund for Community Renewal and Ecological Health -- Request for Proposals

The Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors has issued a Request for Proposals for the Gulf Coast Fund for Community Renewal and Ecological Health. This is a collaborative grant making fund supporting community, state and regional efforts that engage, empower and benefit displaced and returning residents, and that promote the sustainable and just rebuilding of neighborhoods, cities and ecosystems throughout the Gulf Coast. The Fund supports projects that strengthen and amplify local organizing, social justice concerns and movement-building, and that address the underlying causes that contributed to the severity of the disasters in the Gulf Coast. The Fund considers only those proposals that are developed by or in collaboration with residents and advocacy organizations affected by hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and that demonstrate how they will address one or more of the following issues: Right of Return and Right to Stay, Ecological Health, Environmental Justice and Health, Just and Sustainable Rebuilding, Worker Rights, Cultural Arts, Youth and Education.
