Circular Community Grants
Grants are available for grassroots projects that promote sustainability.
Community grants of $500 to $5,000 are available to spur grassroots community projects that promote sustainability in Cleveland and East Cleveland. The grant funds are provided by Circular Cleveland, and the grants will be made through Neighborhood Connections and their Neighbor Up Action Grants.
Circular Cleveland brings together civic and business leaders, nonprofits, and grassroots residents to rethink the whole of our local economy—who it benefits and what it costs. Grants will be made for projects that divert waste from the landfill, reduce pollution, keep products and materials in use, and restore and renew the natural system. Groups are encouraged to think in new ways about what will work in their communities and with whom they might partner.
The deadline for the most recent round was August 15.

Grant applications are reviewed and funding decisions are made by a committee of Cleveland and East Cleveland residents. They will choose based on the applicant’s level of focus on circular economy principles, on their connection to their neighborhood, and on the potential to replicate or scale up the project.
