EPA Posts New Environmental Education Grant Opportunity
The second Request for Proposals (RFP) under the 2014-2015 Environmental Education (EE) Grants Program, called the EE Local Grants RFP, is now open. EPA seeks grant proposals to support locally-focused environmental education projects that promote environmental awareness and stewardship. Successful applicants will submit projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques.
The goal of these projects is to develop informed, knowledgeable citizens, and provide them with the skills to take responsible actions to protect the environment. EPA expects to award three grants from each of EPA's 10 Regional Offices<http://www2.epa.gov/aboutepa#pane-4>, for a total of approximately 30 grants nationwide.
Applications are due March 6, 2015. Read the RFP and learn how to apply here: http://go.usa.gov/MsN4. A webinar specific to the EE Local Grants RFP will be scheduled for a later date.
Proposals under the first RFP, called the EE Model Grants RFP<http://www2.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2014-11/documents/2014_ee_model_…>, will be accepted through February 2, 2015.
