(ATLANTA – Aug. 28, 2012) Through Nov. 21, EPA Region 4 will accept proposals from eligible schools and entities for a $216,000 environmental education grant to develop new programs promoting environmental stewardship across the Southeast.

The Environmental Education Regional Grants Program is a competitive program that supports EPA’s efforts to increase public awareness and knowledge about environmental issues. The total estimated funding for this opportunity is approximately $2,160,000 nationwide. EPA expects to award 10 grants nationally—one per region—with each individual award totaling no more than $216,000.

Applications can be submitted electronically via www.grants.gov by Nov. 21, 2012, 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. Alternately, applications may be postmarked by Nov. 21 or hand delivered by the end of the business day to the EPA Southeast Regional Office. Proposals received after the due date will not be considered.

A solicitation notice announcing the grants program is available online at www.epa.gov/enviroed/grants.html. In September, EPA will host two webinars for potential applicants interested in additional information about the application process. The date, time and call-in information for the webinars will be posted on the website, and interested persons can sign-up online to receive e-mail updates.

Environmental education grants provide funding to local education agencies, state education and environmental agencies; colleges and universities; not-for-profit organizations; and non-commercial broadcasting entities. Tribal education agencies controlled by an Indian tribe, band or nation, including schools and community colleges, may also apply.
