Apply now for the 2018 Environmental Education Local Grant Program
Proposals are due March 15, 2018
Up to $3 million in funding for locally-focused environmental education grants is now available. EPA expects to award three to four grants in each of EPA’s ten Regions, for no less than $50,000 and no more than $100,000 each, for a total of 30-35 grants nationwide. Proposals are due March 15, 2018.
Through this grant program, EPA intends to provide financial support for projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques, that will serve to increase environmental and conservation literacy and encourage behavior that will benefit the environment.
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.
Applicants must apply under the Request for Proposal (also known as a Solicitation Notice) for the EPA Region in which the funded project would be located.
