Deadline: April 16 and April 30, 2013
Advancing Environmental Education in the Southeast U.S. Capacity and Continuity Mini-grants , Office of Environmental Education, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, has two primary goals: 1) to enhance the capacity of Florida’s environmental education leaders to rebuild the necessary structures and programs to effectively support environmental education, and 2) to generate continuity in environmental education programs by funding the implementation of a series of outdoor watershed-based environmental education projects on public conservation lands which establish a core set of indicators/ performance measures for environmental stewardship.
This program’s strategy involves the use of two categories of mini-grants:
One category of six mini-grants will strengthen state-level capacity among the environmental education leadership structure in Florida. One of these mini-grants will support the synthesis of mini-grant lessons learned for documentation and sharing throughout the Southeastern region. Proposals due: April 16, 2013 at 2:30 pm ET.
Pre-proposal public meeting/conference call: March 12, 2013 at 1:00 pm ET
A second category of mini-grants will generate targeted results in the Southeastern U.S. States (KY, TN, NC, SC, MS, AL, GA, and FL). Approximately 15 mini-grants will be funded to promote continuity in environmental education programs that engage students/youth in outdoor watershed-based environmental education on federal conservation lands in the Southeastern U.S. region.
- These mini-grants will encourage a watershed-based approach to environmental education. Proposals are due April 30, 2013 at 2:30 pm ET. Pre-proposal public meeting/conference call: March 19, 2013 at 10:00 am ET.
- For more information/questions about both RFPs and to register for conference calls please contact: Ruth Heggen, FDEP Procurement Administrator Ruth.Heggen@dep.state.fl.us, 850-245-2352
