Check out Iowa’s Conservation Education Grant Opportunities
Got an idea to advance environmental literacy, but lack funds? Mini-grants for up to $3,500 are available from Iowa’s Resource Enhancement and Protection Conservation Education Program (REAP CEP). Standard grants, averaging $22,000, are also available. The CEP annually awards $350,000 for conservation education in Iowa, and grant reviewers are seeking applications for innovative projects that need start-up funds. Plan now for the November 3 grant deadline.
For more information about the application process and the types of programs funded, go to the REAP Conservation Education website (http://www.iowadnr.gov/Environment/REAP/REAPFundingatWork/ConservationEducation.aspx).
