Environmental Education grants provide funding to local education agencies, state education or environmental agencies, colleges or universities, not-for-profit organizations, or noncommercial educational broadcasting entities. Tribal education agencies, which are controlled by an Indian tribe, band or nation, may also apply, including a school or community college.

These projects should involve designing, demonstrating or developing education tools and materials. Projects should be environmental education activities that go beyond disseminating information.
