Climate Action Initiative

The California State Budget Act of 2022–23 allocated $100 million to the University of California Office of the President to invest in research that will have a swift and measurable impact on climate resilience. These funds are being used to fund action-oriented solutions to address California’s climate goals and needs, ensure that local communities are prepared and resilient, and prevent future disasters.

The University of California is excited to announce that over $80 million has been awarded to 38 Seed and Matching Grants, and $15 million has been awarded to 15 Innovation and Entrepreneurship Awards.

Ten of the Seed and Matching Grants also received a Community-Engaged S/Hero Award Supplement to their award, with funding provided by the Strategic Growth Council, to disseminate community engagement methods throughout the state.
