NOAA has released a new Federal Funding Opportunity for Chesapeake B-WET Capacity Building Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences grants. Applications are due by April 6.
Capacity building for MWEEs: These projects can take two forms--(1) state or multistate K-12 environmental literacy initiatives, which advance MWEE implementation or (2) MWEE mini-grant program administration, which supports elements of MWEE implementation at the school level. NOAA believes supporting both types of capacity-building projects is essential to greater implementation and sustainability of MWEEs.
An informational webinar (online registration now available) regarding the capacity-building opportunity will be held on Friday, February 17, at 11 a.m. Eastern time. Online registration is available.
