Work Green Mini-Grants

Work Green Mini Grants

Do you have an innovative idea, pilot project, or educational need to make your office or Georgia Tech workplace more sustainable? If yes, consider applying for a Work Green Mini-Grant. The Work Green Mini-Grant supports the implementation of environmental practices in work spaces on Georgia Tech’s campus. The fund also promotes sustainable actions and behaviors among workplace staff. Faculty and staff who have completed the Work Green Certification are eligible to apply for a mini grant of up to $500.

Funding will support proposals for initiatives that support sustainable behaviors, seek new knowledge, and make sustainable practices outlined in the Work Green Resource Guide more viable. Proposals can be submitted at any time.

Funding guidelines:

  • Only staff and faculty that submitted a Work Green Certification application will be considered for funding;
  • All applicants must also complete a Work Green Mini-Grant application;
  • The fund is not a stipend, and it cannot support staff labor costs or supplement material goods normally purchased with the office’s budget (paper, office supplies, etc.);
  • Grant recipients are expected to provide a brief report at the conclusion of the project made up of narratives, data, photographs, and other documentation of subsequent sustainability changes; and
  • Proposal expenses must comply with state funding allowable expenses.
