Grant Opportunity: Watershed Education

The Water Resources Education Network (WREN) is now accepting applications for their 2012-2013 watershed education grants. This is a great opportunity to secure funding for your innovative education project.

The WREN Watershed Education Grant Program seeks to raise public awareness, encourage behavior change, and improve public policies to protect water resources in Pennsylvania. WREN invites grant proposals for Watershed Protection Education projects from local coalitions that will raise awareness and educate Pennsylvania citizens, local officials, and other community stakeholders about their roles as environmental stewards to protect, improve, or remediate the watershed from the impacts of polluted runoff.

The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania Citizen Education Fun invites partnerships of local or regional organizations, such as watershed associations, civic groups, community water systems, governmental entities (including municipal authorities), and other public interest organizations to carefully review the WREN Grant Application Guidelines and Application Form and to submit an application to LWVPA CEF. Applications are due by Friday, March 23, 2012. Successful applicants will be notified by May 16, 2012. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded for projects to take place July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013.
