National Environmental Education Foundation Requests Applications for Capacity-Building Grants

Due: October 30, 2014

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

With support from Toyota Motor Sales USA, NEEF will award capacity-building grants of up to $5,000 to “Friends Groups,” which are defined as nonprofit, community-based organizations whose core mission is to improve and promote the responsible use of a public land or water site in the United States. Groups interested in applying for a grant may work at the federal, state, city, or local level; must have been in existence for at least two years; and must have a collaborative relationship with a local public lands site that has lasted for at least a year.

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

For the complete RFP and application instructions, visit NEEF’s website.
