Acknowledgment of Funding and Resource Contributions to the Northwest Toxic Communities Coalition
The NWTCC is indebted to the special support it has received from the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition(DRCC). The DRCC is one of the original organizations that fostered the grassroots development of the NWTCC.
The NWTCC has been graciously awarded two grants from the Environmental Support Center. Funds were targeted toward the the Fall Summit 2008 (Building Community-Sharing a Vision) and Spring Summit 2009 (Creating Vital and Inclusive Communities). As part of the second award, the NWTCC was also able to provide travel for NWTCC membership to participate in the "Indigenous Peoples Global Summit on Climate Change" in April of 2009.
The NWTCC was awarded two grants from the Seattle based Horizons Foundation. In 2013, funds were dedicated towards travel for NWTCC members to attend the NWTCC Annual Summit in the Fall and followup work.
In 2014, the NWTCC also received two grants from Horizons and Rose Foundations. Those grants were awarded for public outreach and education purposes related to the land spreading of contaminated sewage sludge as compost/fertilizer for farm and forest soils and for growing human food.
The NWTCC has been consistently supported by the Superfund Research Program (SRP) at the University of Washington. The SRP has helped with summit venues, scientific speakers and support member travel. The unique community-academic partnership between the NWTCC and the SRP provides NWTCC member organizations access to relevant current research.
The NWTCC is always seeking funding and resource support for our efforts in helping communities and organizations clean up toxic sites. If you would like to learn more about how you or your organization can support the NWTCC, please contact us.
