The next Radical Action Grants Round will be open 11 February – 10 March 2019. We also aspire to run a Springg 2019 round. You can read our application criteria on the Apply page. We only accept applications during rounds.

Radical Action Grants (RAG) supports radical grassroots environmental activism – especially climate and climate justice activism – in Aotearoa.

Aimed at groups less able to access conventional sources of funding, the grants give inspirational and thought provoking projects – usually done on shoestring budgets with volunteer time – a much needed boost.

Thank you to to all our donors!

Remember to check us out on Facebook.

More than ever we need real climate action! If you have ideas on environmental and climate actions you would like to see in your town, and need some funding to make it happen, please apply for a Radical Action Grant. We would especially like to encourage campaigning for climate justice and environmental justice.
