Grounded in the Environmental Justice Movement's principles for Just Transition and the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing, the Equitable Building Electrification Fund: A Collaboration for Frontline Communities is advancing a new vision, strategies, and processes to: 
  • Support self-determination

  • Equitably distribute resources and power, and

  • Build what is needed so that people can afford to stay in their homes, electrify them, and correct for the historic, institutional racism deeply embedded at the intersection of housing and energy, and philanthropy.

Mission Statement

The Equitable Building Electrification Fund: A Collaboration for Frontline Communities centers equity and people in the removal of fossil fuels from buildings and communities. 

  • We give resources to grassroots, frontline, and base-building organizations and leaders in communities of color and low-income communities to support their self-determined priorities.

  • We seek to find solutions that can transform the balance of power in the ownership and distribution of energy production, energy infrastructure, and housing.
