Green Fund accepting applications for fall deadline

The Penn Green Fund is currently accepting ideas from the University community about ways to improve Penn’s environmental performance and reduce campus emissions.

Proposed Green Fund projects must support goals and objectives outlined in Penn’s Climate Action Plan, a long-range strategy, launched in 2009 and updated in 2014, to reduce the University’s carbon footprint and enhance its overall sustainability.

Since 2009, this initiative of Penn’s Green Campus Partnership, funded by the Division of Facilities and Real Estate Services, has seeded innovative ideas in environmental sustainability from Penn students, faculty, and staff.

The fall deadline for grants more than $7,500, up to $30,000, is on Oct. 31 at 5 p.m.
