U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Grants
The United States Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Education (EE) Grants Program is seeking grant proposals from eligible applicants to support environmental education projects that promote environmental stewardship and help develop knowledgeable and responsible students, teachers, and citizens.
This grant program provides financial support for projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques, and that will serve as models that can be replicated in a variety of settings. Proposals are due by 4 February 2014.
The program works to engage communities across the country through educational projects that have a lasting impact on local watersheds and air quality. This year's competitive grants program will total $2.77 million. Grants will be awarded from each of the ten EPA regional offices and EPA's headquarters in Washington, DC for a total of 22 to 32 grants. Each award will be an estimated $75,000 to $200,000.
