Midwest Climate & Energy


Program Goal: Take bold action on the climate crisis by dramatically cutting carbon pollution in the Midwest by 2030.

The Midwest Climate & Energy program focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, at scale, as quickly as possible in the Midwest. 

McKnight’s work engages the region’s communities in pursuing ambitious climate goals, recognizing that this work requires a healthy democracy grounded in racial and economic justice. We pursue this work through grants, investments, convenings, and community engagement. 

Please note: The program currently uses a closed application process. Proposals for funding are accepted only from organizations that are invited to apply.
