Conservation Education & Outreach Grant

Accepting Applications

Eligible applicants include state and local agencies, tribes, non-profit organizations and educational institutions. The Conservation Education and Outreach Program (CE) provides funding to organizations that help people of all ages understand and appreciate our country’s natural resources and how to conserve those resources for future generations. Through structured educational experiences and activities targeted to diverse age groups and populations, CE enables people to realize how natural resources and ecosystems affect each other and how resources can be used wisely.

Funding is currently available for eligible applicants to expand or enhance CE programs and activities. Funding requests may not exceed $10,000 per application and indirect costs may not exceed 10% of the total budget request. All qualifying applications will be evaluated upon receipt by NDF program staff and given priority rankings. Selected projects will be awarded funding on a continuing basis until available funds have been allocated, at which time, notification will be sent that no further applications will be accepted until the next fiscal year.
