EPA makes up to $3 Million available for locally-focused environmental education grants
In addition to other environmental topics, the 2018 EE Local Grant Program includes support for projects that reflect the intersection of environmental issues with agricultural best-practices, conservation of natural resources, food waste management, and natural disaster preparedness. Funded projects will increase public awareness of those topics and help participants to develop the skills needed to make informed decisions. A Request for Proposals (also called a Solicitation Notice) containing details will be issued by each of the ten EPA Regions.
Through this grant program, EPA intends to provide financial support for projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques, as described in this notice, that will serve to increase environmental and conservation literacy and encourage behavior that will benefit the environment in the local community(ies) in which they are located.
The full solicitation notices are available at www.grants.gov and at http://www.epa.gov/education/environmental-education-ee-grant-solicitation-notice.
