Environmental Education Grant Program

Posted by Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on November 10, 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.

Administered through DEP, the funds are used for projects ranging from creative, hands-on lessons for students, teacher training programs, and outdoor learning resources to conservation education for adults.

Application Due Date: Applications must be postmarked to DEP no later than December 19, 2014. Applications from ineligible organizations, faxes, emails and late submissions will not be accepted.
