Environmental Justice Small Grants Program for Community Research
This action approves an award in the amount of $25,000 to Appalachia - Science in the Public Interest to help households in Franklin County, Kentucky, reduce their household greenhouse gas emissions. Residential greenhouse gas emissions in Frankfort represented 60% of the city�s total greenhouse gas emissions. The project called "Lighten Up, Frankfort!" addresses the environmental and public health impacts of fossil fueled based energy systems and the economic threats facing low-income families in the community. The project will also educate the community on how to change their energy use in ways that will both reduce demand for fossil fuels and save money on their utility bills.
