Community Grants 2007

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description In August 2007, TURI funded $68,200 in community grants to help Massachusetts organizations raise awareness about toxics in everyday products and encourage the use of safer alternatives. New to the 2008 TURI Community Grant Program is two-tier funding: Tier 1 project grants range up to $1,000 and Tier 2 grants range up to $15,000.

The following four organizations received $1,000 each to integrate toxics use reduction concepts into on-going projects or build capacity to apply for a Tier 2 grant next year:

Friends of Tyler Park, Lowell, MA – will encourage the reduction of pesticide use in Lowell’s residential and civic spaces with a non-pesticide demonstration lawn site at Tyler Park

The Organic Land Care Program of NOFA/Massachusetts Chapter, Inc., Barre, MA – will offer scholarships to six Massachusetts municipal employees to attend an organic lawn care course

Brazilian Women’s Group, Allston, MA – will educate Brazilian house cleaners about choosing safer cleaning products

Holliston Fire Department – will build a program to educate the public about MassDEP pesticide regulations, the risks of pesticides, and alternative ways to maintain a healthier yard.
