DEP Environmental Education Grants Program
Posted by Department of Environmental Protection on October 27, 2014
Each year, Pennsylvania invests in its schools, county conservation districts and other nonprofit organizations to improve environmental awareness among students and adults alike.
The Environmental Education Grant Program was established by the Environmental Education Act of 1993, which mandates that five percent of all pollution fines and penalties collected annually by the Department of Environmental Protection be set aside for environmental education. Since the inception of the environmental education grant program, DEP has awarded more than $9.6 million in grants to support the environmental education efforts throughout Pennsylvania.
