Advancing Environmental Literacy through a Small Grant Program

The Environmental Education Association of New Mexico (EEANM) was awarded a grant of $150,000 from the US EPA to administer a small grant program throughout EPA Region 6.  EEANM is partnering with the Texas Association for Environmental Education, the Louisiana Association for Environmental Education, the Arkansas Environmental Education Association, the Oklahoma Environmental Education Association, and the Albert I Pierce Foundation to solicit proposals for projects that meet state association priorities.  Projects include professional development, student projects, or statewide capacity building for delivering environmental education.  Each state association provided a team of reviewers to select projects with budgets up to $5,000.  Nineteen grants have been funded throughout the five-state region.  The projects were selected in December 2012.  The grant period is one year.
