FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Kansas City, Kan., March 3, 2011) - Through May 2, EPA Region 7 will accept proposals from eligible applicant schools and entities for the Agency’s 2011 Environmental Education grants to develop new programs promoting environmental stewardship in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska communities.

In previous years, EPA issued Environmental Education grants from its headquarters in Washington, D.C. This year, EPA regional offices, including the Region 7 office in Kansas City, Kan., will directly award grants between $15,000 and $100,000.

Proposals for 2011 grants should be mailed to Denise Morrison, Environmental Education Coordinator, Office of Public Affairs, EPA Region 7, 901 N. 5th Street, Kansas City, KS, 66101. Proposals must be received by 5 p.m. (CDT) May 2, 2011; those received after the due date will not be considered.

A solicitation notice announcing the grants program is available online. For additional information, contact Denise Morrison at morrison.denise@epa.gov.

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.

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