Grant Opportunities Fall 2019

Request for Proposals Fall 2019

The Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice (Haury Program) invites your community and university partnerships to share your ideas to create a just and sustainable society as our future. We know that many University of Arizona and Community Partnerships are thinking about how to move the needle in building a stronger, more sustainable social fabric. We ask you to imagine what a socially just and sustainable Southwest will look like in 25 years and tell us your plans for projects that will work to make ideas reality.

Our program funds work that improves social justice (justice regarding the distribution of financial, social, political and human capital, opportunities, and privileges within a society) while simultaneously addressing environmental sustainability (such as climate change, pollution, natural resource degradation, and loss of biodiversity).

The Fall 2019 funding opportunity is open in three categories Challenge Grants, Seed Grants, and Partnering Awards. Details about requirements, eligibility, information sessions, and schedules are found in the specific RFP.  

We made significant changes to the submittal process. Please read the application information carefully before submitting your proposal.
