Climate Justice Resilience Fund

Grants for women, youth, and indigenous peoples to support community-led solutions for climate resilience

Principal Office: United States

The Climate Justice Resilience Fund promotes community-led, rights-based approaches to climate adaptation and resilience-building.

The Fund makes grants to community-led organizations for the development and implementation of climate solutions that help them reduce risks, build climate resilience, and reduce injustices associated with climate change impacts.

Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources

Grants to promote climate resilience. The Fund makes grants to Women, Youth and Indigenous Peoples to create and share their own solutions for climate resilience. CJRF grants also support advocacy, coalition building, and outreach initiatives of four inter-related issues: water access, food security and sovereignty, sustainable livelihoods, and climate-related migration and relocation.

APPLICATION: The Fund requests letters of Inquiry through a call for proposals. Letters of inquiry should be no more than three pages long, summarize the proposed project’s objectives, intended outcomes, budget, and current co-funding.

About Grantmaking

(Note: Due to overwhelming interest, the Fund no longer responds to unsolicited letters of inquiry. CJRF now operates with an invitation-only grantmaking process.)
