Center for Community Energy and Environmental Justice

SDSU’s Center for Community Energy and Environmental Justice (CCEEJ) aims to strengthen community organizations' capacity and effectiveness in applying to, managing, and implementing environmental and energy justice grants and programs.

We help community organizations by providing technical assistance. This includes conducting environmental and energy justice needs assessment and analyses, facilitating navigation of government systems, identifying grant opportunities, and increasing grant getting and administration capacity. We also support decision-making participation and train community champions. You can read our FAQs and find more information about what we do here.

What the community has to say about CCEEJ
A testimonial from a participating nonprofit organization
“As an emerging nonprofit, the resources CCEEJ offers have been very important in continuing our growth. Smaller nonprofits do not have the staff or capacity until consistent funding is secured. CCEEJ's support in identifying funding sources and offering input is an invaluable resource to ensure our new organization can expand and serve environmentally underserved local communities.”

Request technical assistance

You can request technical assistance by sending us an email, leaving a voicemail, or by filling out the form linked below. Once we receive your request, our staff will connect with you to answer your questions and provide technical assistance support.
