Grants of up to $20,000 to Washington, DC nonprofit and faith-based organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and private entities to provide educational programs addressing environmental issues. Funding is intended to support activities focused on improving water quality, improving participants’ job readiness, and establishing or deepening their connection to the environment.
DOEE seeks eligible entities to develop projects that will provide District youth and young adults, ages 14-24, participating in the Green Zone Environmental Program (GZEP), a summer workforce development program, with education and training focused on improving water quality, establishing or deepening participants’ connection to the environment, and provide skills for entry-level jobs in the green economy. In addition, projects should raise awareness and lead to behavior change on issues of water quality and the impacts of stormwater runoff on District water bodies.
Each selected grantee is expected to work with a cohort of 25 participants on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the six-week program running from June 28 to August 6, 2021. The projects should engage participants in activities that strengthen their resumes, raise awareness about the impacts of stormwater runoff on District water bodies, and establish or deepen participants’ connection to the environment.
While GZEP typically operates in-person, DOEE is currently planning for the program to operate virtually in 2021 due to the District’s current public health emergency. However, if restrictions are lifted between publication of this RFA and the start of the program, DOEE would like to give the selected grantees the opportunity to offer hands-on, in-person field experiences to participants.
