Through this new program, the Trust seeks to further Environmental Literacy efforts in Region 3 (Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia).
The program was established with support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Environmental Education to provide accessible funds to local education agencies, college or universities, state education or environmental agencies, and non-profit organizations for Environmental Education capacity building that advances state and local environmental education efforts. You can learn more about this new grant program on the Chesapeake Bay Trust website, or by reading the official request for proposals here.
As this is the first time a Trust grant has been made available to all of Region 3, please help us spread the word about this opportunity to your news, email and social media contacts. You can find the official press release here.
