Proposals for the initial stage of the 2014 Environmental Education (EE) Grants Program are now being accepted. This year, EPA intends to issue two Requests for Proposals (RFP) under the EE Grants Program; the EE Model Grants RFP is now available for viewing. Proposals under the 2014 EE Model Grants RFP are now being accepted through February 2, 2015. Three grants, for approximately $192,200 each, will be awarded under this RFP.
Under the EE Model Grants RFP, EPA seeks grant proposals to support EE projects that promote environmental awareness and stewardship. Projects under this RFP will help provide people with the skills to take responsible actions to protect the environment. Proposals must include projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate model EE practices, methods, or techniques. Each funded proposal must demonstrate replicability by locating and conducting the project in more than one state or U.S. territory during the project period.
EPA anticipates releasing an additional RFP under the 2014 EE Grants Program in early winter, for local grants that will be awarded by EPA regional offices. Visit the 2014 EE Grants Program webpage for details on how to apply.
