Action Alert: FY25 EE Appropriations Campaign

FY25 EE Funding Action Alert

Calling all educators and advocates! It's time once again to reach out to your Senators and Representatives to ask for support for robust funding for EE in the FY25 federal budget. We need to reach out to as many House of Representative offices as possible by the end of this week (March 28th or 29th), and next, as early as possible, to ensure our legislators sign on to support EPA environmental education funding. We've put together everything you need to get started right away.

These materials can also be found on the NAAEE website. 

Background and More Information

NAAEE and our allies are calling on educators, students, and other advocates to each take a few minutes to request that their Members of Congress support EE by “signing” an electronic support letter to the respective appropriations committees. You will be asking your legislators to endorse a funding letter for the EPA Office of Environmental Education, including the crucial grant program. There will be a separate letter for Senators to sign in the coming week or weeks. There will also be support letters for NOAA environmental education programs to follow.

The offices of your representatives are staffed at this time of year to consider these requests—this is one of the easiest things you can ask your Rep. or Senator to do.

The biggest reason we hear from Members of Congress about why they didn’t sign these letters is : “I wasn’t asked”!

Use our campaign guide to get started and let us know if you have any questions or need support!
