Grant Description

Grants of up to $1,000 to Kentucky schools, educators, and students in eligible locations for environmental and conservation education. New and existing programs are eligible for funding.

Applicants must be located in Campbell County.

Grant funds may be used for a variety of projects and materials including:
  • Materials to enhance an outdoor learning area;

Strong consideration will be given to proposals that will use additional materials, labor, or dollars for the project (i.e., donations, volunteer labor, other grants, PTA involvement school funds). 

Proposals for the expansion of existing programs will be considered.
