Rose Foundation

Oakland, California



This two-year project support grant will allow Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment to develop and administer the Grassroots Leaders Fund, a two-year regranting and capacity building training program focused on equity-based climate resiliency approaches to urban stormwater and wastewater systems. Funded through Kresge’s Climate Resilient and Equitable Water Systems (CREWS) Initiative, the cohort consists of 32 grantees working nationally to build a more climate resilient water sector.
