Program Goal: Foster and support climate and energy leadership in the Midwest, making the region a model for the world by reducing energy-related greenhouse emissions.
The Midwest Climate & Energy program envisions a thriving, carbon-neutral midwestern economy by transforming the energy system.
McKnight’s work engages the region’s public and private leaders, decisionmakers, and residents in building low-carbon communities and economies that are vibrant, equitable, and resilient. We pursue these goals through grants, investments, convenings, and community engagement.
Please note: The program uses a closed application process. Proposals for funding are accepted only from organizations that are invited to apply.
