OVERVIEW
The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) provides funding for projects which “green” our campus and reduce the University’s impact on the environment. Since this student-funded initiative began over ten years ago, TGIF has advanced over 100 projects that increase the amount of renewable energy used on campus, increase water and energy efficiency, and reduce waste at the University. The fund also provides critical support for carbon neutrality projects and UCSB’s goal to reach zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2025.

TGIF is now soliciting proposals for the funding cycle 2019-20. You may download the 2019-20 Funding Application, the Sample Timeline and the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Spreadsheet for use in preparing your application.
