13 Innovators Awarded Grants through the SoCal Climate Champions Grant from SoCalGas
SoCalGas announced today that 13 innovative organizations were awarded project grants of up to $40,000 each through the company's SoCal Climate Champions Grant. These grants aim to support projects that focus on resilient energy, clean air, and organic waste to reduce, mitigate, or sequester greenhouse gas emissions.
The SoCal Climate Champions Grant recognizes programs, projects and research submissions that address climate solutions for communities in SoCalGas' service areas. Since its start in 2021, the grant has distributed $1 million in grants to nonprofits innovating for a more sustainable future. The SoCal Climate Champions Grant is part of a renewed focus on SoCalGas' Environmental Champions Initiative that began in 2015. Since then, the SoCalGas' Environmental Champions Initiative has awarded more than 200 grants, totaling over $3.8 million to support projects that improve the environment or lower emissions.
