Kermit the Frog warned us many years ago: It’s not always easy being green. But here in Borderstan, we do a pretty great job of maintaining an eco-friendly community, thanks to several of our sustainable and environmentally focused shops, restaurants and businesses.

This year, Ford Motor Company is looking to fuel more of your sustainable, forward-thinking ideas with its Ford Community Green Grant. Local non-profits and community leaders are encouraged to submit innovative proposals for a chance to win a $5,000 grant.

The deadline for entries is September 7, 2012, and the grant winner will be announced on Sunday, September 30 (the final day of this year’s Green Festival in DC). To apply, submit your idea to communitygreengrant[AT]

This year’s Eighth Annual Green Festival runs from 10 am until 7 pm on Saturday, September 29, and from 11 am until 6 pm on Sunday, September 30 at the Washington Convention Center.

For more information on the Ford Community Green Grant and the Green Festival, visit the grant’s website.
