The Environmental Justice Network in Action (EJNA) Program is a collaboration between Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) and the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program (LHWMP) in King County. EJNA’s aim is to build reciprocal relationships and partnerships with community-based organizations, nonprofits, government agencies, and community members to ensure that all rate payers have equitable access to programs and services. In 2010, EJNA is providing funds for culturally-appropriate multimedia approaches that promote equitable access and usage of LHWMP and SPU programs and services for Historically Underserved Communities (HUCs). For the purpose of this proposal, “HUCs” include people of color, immigrant and refugee, low-income, youth, seniors and disabled communities. Community-based organizations, neighborhood groups, schools, consultants, youth programs, faith-based organizations and artists are all encouraged to apply with appropriate fiscal sponsor partnerships if needed. Applicants must be located within King County. The deadline for project applications is Wednesday, March 31 at 5:00 pm. For more information or to apply, follow the above link.
