NEEEA, in partnership with the six state professional EE associations, will award at least nineteen grants up to $5,000 each to eligible groups such as non-profits, EE organizations, schools, and local or state agencies. Made possible by a $150,000 grant from the U.S. EPA Regional Environmental Education Sub-Grants program, the awards will support projects that increase environmental education capacity on a state-wide level. The program will also support projects that advance education by helping implement state environmental education plans.Successful proposals will be able to implement a wide range of regional priorities such as:

  • Implementing one or more objectives of a state’s Environmental Literacy Plan
  • Designing, implementing, and linking environmental education programs and leadership across a state or states to promote long-term
    sustainability of the programs
  • Developing replicable and sustainable professional development programs for teachers and trainers
