London Environmental Network has been awarded the London Community Foundation's Community Vitality Grant (CVG) for $200,000!
This grant will further support LEN's Non-Profit Resiliency Project (NRP) for the next 2 years! The NRP program collaborates with 8 low-income non-profits that provide housing for vulnerable populations in the London/Middlesex area! This program supports the transformation of their residential buildings into highly efficient and resilient spaces, aiming to achieve net-zero emissions.
Nicole Karsch, Director of Programs at LEN says the NRP project "is unique as it meaningfully includes organizations and communities that have traditionally faced barriers to fully participating in" retrofitting. This program with the support of this new grant will ensure no one will get left behind in this transition to an electrified economy/net-zero future!
