Hoboken awards $50,000 in grant funding for youth climate action projects

Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla and the City of Hoboken today announced the recipients of the Youth Climate Action Fund. A total of 11 youth-led projects in Hoboken will receive microgrants ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 each, funded by a $50,000 grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies. These microgrants aim to empower young residents to initiate and lead efforts addressing critical climate challenges within the Hoboken community.

“Our young people are catalysts for change, and their innovative ideas are essential to our fight against climate change,” said Mayor Bhalla. “The Youth Climate Action Fund will nurture and support these bright minds and their visions for a sustainable future, enabling these youth-led projects to come to life and make a real impact in our community. Thank you to Bloomberg Philanthropies for their partnership on this worthy initiative."

A diverse committee selected the projects, including educators, faith-based leaders, City staff, Hoboken Housing Authority staff, members of the Hoboken Green Team and Shade Tree Commission, and representatives from the Hoboken Youth Advisory Council.
