About the Event
The summer is fast approaching!
Do you have ideas to keep cool in the heat? This summer, the City of Somerville will be awarding mini grants to residents and community groups to move forward creative and impactful cooling solutions. Fill out the survey below to let us know you have a mini grant idea and to sign up to attend the upcoming Keep Cool Somerville Idea Workshop on Tuesday, May 4, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.
This virtual event will bring together residents and community groups to learn about the heat risks impacting Somerville residents and about this funding opportunity. You will also get to share and discuss ideas with other participants, City Staff, and content experts to help you develop your idea into a summer cooling project.
Can’t attend the event? Please still fill out the survey to get updates on the project and to let us know about your mini grant idea. Thank you for your interest and time!
If you have an idea for a project but need help in your preferred language, please fill out the registration survey and let us know about your language preference.

Keep Cool Somerville is an initiative to improve community resilience to extreme heat. The initiative began in 2020 as a collaboration between the City of Somerville and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to address the health impacts of climate change. In 2021, the initiative will build upon the findings of earlier community engagement and research to focus on supporting community solutions to address heat. The initiative is advised by the Keep Cool Advisory Committee, an interdisciplinary group of city staff and community representatives, and is supported by a grant from the MAPC Accelerating Climate Resiliency Grant Program.
