WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) announced the opening of applications for the 2020 Environmental Education (EE) Grants Program sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has $3 million in funding available for locally-focused environmental education projects under the program.
In addition to other environmental topics, the 2020 EE Grants Program will fund education-based projects pertaining to marine debris mitigation, food waste and loss reduction, and recycling.
“It is our responsibility to promote environmental awareness and stewardship in the 15th District of Texas,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “I encourage those who need financial support to design and teach strong environmental practices to apply for this federal funding.”
The EPA will award three to four grants in each of the agency’s 10 regions. Groups must submit their application by January 6, 2020, to be considered.
