National Environmental Education Foundation Accepting Applications For Shovel-Ready Pollinator Habitat Projects

With major support from
Toyota Motor North America, the National Environmental Education Foundation is now accepting applications for $200,000 in grant funding to support shovel-ready pollinator habitat enhancement projects on America’s public lands.

The deadline for applications is February 17.

Habitat enhancement projects should directly support the creation, restoration, remediation, improvement, and/or protection of habitats for important pollinator species such as butterflies, bees, bats, and more. Additionally, projects should incorporate community outreach and engagement activities designed to educate and empower the public to help enhance pollinator habitats.

Funding Priorities

-- Habitat Enhancement Projects: Projects must implement on-the-ground activities designed to increase the quality, quantity, and connectivity of pollinator habitats. Applicants must define a step-by-step plan including site preparation, size of the project area, and description of target pollinator. If preparing a proposal that includes collecting seeds or cultivating native seedlings, applicants should describe the intended use of the seeds or seedlings.

-- Community Engagement: Projects must provide opportunities for public engagement through education or volunteer-focused events. Projects should aim to collaborate with a diverse group of community partners to achieve engagement and educational outcomes. Grantees will be required to report on the number of events implemented and the number of participants engaged during the grant period.
