Program: The New England Grassroots Environment Fund (NEGEF) supports volunteer driven community groups working at the local level in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. NEGEF interprets the word ‘environment’ broadly and will provide funding for a wide range of activities. Whole systems-thinking is critical to initiatives focused on making our environment better, healthier and more sustainable. NEGEF Seed and Grow grants are intended to support community groups who represent the most exciting energy in the environmental movement that are not being reached by traditional funders
