EPA Environmental Education Grant Program
http://www.epa.gov/enviroed/grants.html

The Grant Program sponsored by EPA's Office of Environmental Education supports environmental education projects that enhance the public's awareness, knowledge, and skills to make informed decisions that affect environmental quality. Since 1992, EPA has received between $2 and $3 million in grant funding per year and has awarded about 1,700 grants.

Grants of $25,000 or less are awarded in EPA's ten regional offices, and grants of more than $25,000 are awarded at EPA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Applying for a grant - Each year EPA's Office of Environmental Education releases a Solicitation Notice in the Federal Register that provides instructions for obtaining a grant. Fiscal Year 2002 Solicitation Notice. http://www.epa.gov/enviroed/solnotice01.html
