The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) is one of only 33 organizations to be awarded funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Environmental Education Grants Program. GHHI’s $100,000 grant will support efforts to educate Marylanders about climate change, actions that can be taken to reduce a household’s greenhouse gas emissions, and resources to assist with climate action. The GHHI project funded by this grant will focus on grassroots, cross-sector advocacy to advance healthy, climate change-resilient housing in the state.
The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative commends the Biden-Harris Administration on the release of $6.5 billion for states, tribes, and territories as a tangible and transformational investment in protecting the health of the American people and ensuring the delivery of safe drinking water.
