Environmental Justice Incubator Launch


Jul 29, 2024 - Aug 2, 2024


8:00 am - 5:00 pm



The Launch Environmental Justice Incubator program is a transformative six-month journey to support community leaders for project development, fundraising, and project implementation. The program blends monthly group cohort workshops, educational speakers, and individual one-on-one technical assistance, creating a robust environment to support environmental justice projects. Participant commitment is anticipated to be approximately 8 hours per month.

Preference will be given to applicants who previously participated in the Ignite Environmental Justice Workshops; however, previous participation is not an application requirement. Application and participation for the Launch EJ Incubator program are free.

In alignment with the Justice40 Navigator initiative of New Sun Rising and RiverWise, the Launch EJ Incubator program is specifically designed for projects that are working within a federally designated Environmental Justice Census Tracts in Allegheny or Beaver County.
Using New Sun Rising’s Vibrancy Portal, you can check to see if your community project is working within a designated EJ area by selecting: “​​Show Federal Environmental Justice Tracts” below the map.
For open response questions that are not applicable to your project or information you do not have, please put “N/A” in the answer space.
We anticipate receiving more applications than we have spots available in this year’s Launch EJ Incubator. Therefore, we expect that the process to select a cohort will be competitive.
Application Deadline is July 12th @ 5pm 
Launch EJ Incubator will begin the week of July 29th
