Funding for an Environmental Project
We have the opportunity to pursue another grant specifically for environmental projects in small communities in Idaho. Thanks to the Idaho Environmental Educators Association for letting me know!
Youth Environmental Project Grant - Funds Available
Thanks to the generous support of US EPA, the Alaska Forum is offering a funding opportunity for youth (6th to 12th grade) to implement small projects in their communities. We have developed a detailed Request for Proposals which outlines the procedures and requirements for applying for funding up to $5,000. The program will support focused proposals from small communities (population of less than 5,000) across EPA Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington) where youth seek involvement in environmental stewardship efforts. Proposals will be selected where youth are matched with a local environmental professional or teacher who will mentor youth as they address a specific problem in the community and work to solve it. Non-profit organizations, middle schools and high schools serving communities with a population of less than 5,000 are located in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington may submit proposals.
For more information, download the RFP at http://akforum.com/PDFs/RFP2012.pdf. Deadline for submittals is November 15, 2012.
