The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is seeking grant proposals from eligible applicants for the 2016 round of funding from the Environmental Education (EE) Grants Program. The grants are intended to support local environmental education projects that promote environmental awareness and stewardship and help provide people with the skills to take responsible actions to protect the environment. USEPA’s EE Grants Program provides financial support for projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques. USEPA expects to award up to three grants from each of its 10 regional offices, for a total of approximately 30 grants nationwide. The award amount for each of these grants will be approximately, but no more than, $91,000. Applicants must represent one of the following types of organizations to be eligible:
*State Education Agency
*State Environmental Agency
*College or University
*Nonprofit Organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
*Tribal Education Agency
