The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation accepts applications annually to the Charlottesville Area Eco-Living Fund.

The Fund aims to steer people’s daily life habits toward zero-footprint or net-positive impact on the natural world. Grant funding supports specific, concrete activities that can demonstrate quantifiable results including improve a building's performance.

Funded projects:
1) are designed not simply to improve the environmental-friendliness or sustainability of a particular building or facility, but rather to permanently change many, many buildings' performance and/or people's daily life habits to be better for the planet; and

2) have specific, concrete actions which have quantifiable results of people living and/or buildings performing more sustainably; and

3) are designed, tracked, documented, and reported in ways that they can be showcased to serve as positive change models for other organizations and communities; and

4) (bonus, particularly encouraged though not required): result in people, businesses or institutions saving money.

Successful proposals will include all of the first three (3) of the above characteristics, not just one or two of them.

Applicants must be tax-exempt 501(c) (3) organizations or government agencies. Grants are limited to projects in the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation service area, which includes Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Buckingham, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Nelson, and Orange.
