National Environmental Education Foundation Invites Applications for Capacity-Building Grants

The National Environmental Education Foundation works to promote lifelong environmental learning by connecting people to knowledge they can use to improve the quality of their lives and the health of the planet.

NEEF, with support from Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc., will be awarding capacity-building grants of up to $5,000 each to Friends Groups that have been in existence for at least two years. A Friends Group is defined as a nonprofit organization whose core mission is to support the improvement and responsible use of a public land or water site in the United States. Friends Groups may serve more than one site, such as a regional group of parks. Applicants must have had an established collaborative relationship with a local public lands site (including federal, state, regional, county, city or other local public lands area) for at least one year.

Applicants may only request funds for capacity building. Examples include strategic planning, leadership development, assessments, marketing and communications, and staff training.

For the complete RFP, application instructions, and lists of previous grant recipients, visit the NEEF website.
