NOAA Now Accepting Chesapeake Bay Watershed Education & Training Grant Applications; Grant Webinars On Jan. 7 & 19

The NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office is now accepting applications for
FY 21 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Education and Training Grants.  The deadline is March 1.

This year, new grants will focus on one of the following two priorities: increasing local school district capacity to plan for and deliver curriculum-embedded environmental education, and implementing system-wide MWEEs in school districts. 

NOAA recognizes that educators are facing challenges due to shifts between in-person and virtual learning this year and because of this aim to provide maximum flexibility in how B-WET programs are delivered. 

These grants are intended to help school districts develop long-lasting MWEE programs that exist well beyond the grant funding.

This year the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office has also included an optional Special Interest Area of Community Partnerships. This includes projects that partner specifically with community organizations that are run by and/or serve marginalized groups, particularly minority communities.

Grant Webinars

NOAA will hold two webinars for prospective grant applicants on January 7 and 19.  Click Here to register for the webinars.
