National Environmental Education Foundation Accepting Proposals for Public Land Events

The National Environmental Education Foundation is accepting pre-proposals for its 2016 Every Day Event grant program.

Grants of up to $2,000 will be awarded to public land organizations or friends groups to host a minimum of three events. Events must be either educational, recreational, and/or volunteer-based; take place on a public land site that is owned by the public and not just open for public use; be for new events or expanding and/or improving past events; be completed within the one-year grant period; and occur outside of any National Public Lands Day participation.

To be eligible, applicants must be a community-based nonprofit organization whose mission is focused on serving a public land site in the United States and the improvement and responsible use of that site; have been in existence for at least two years; and have had an established collaborative relationship with a local public land site (including federal, state, regional, county, city or other local public land areas) for at least a year.

Pre-proposals must be submitted no later than December 15, 2015. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals.
