This is a competitive opportunity for grants to assist in the development of new programs, encourage innovative partnerships among environmental education programs, and support geographically targeted programs to advance environmental education efforts that complement national and state school requirements. The Hawaii B-WET program plays a foundational role as an environmental education program that promotes locally relevant, experiential learning in the K–12 environment on Priority Content Areas such as Science with an emphasis on climate and Indigenous Knowledge. Funded projects provide Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences for students and professional development for teachers that support regional education and environmental priorities.

The total federal amount that may be requested is a minimum of $50,000 and a maximum of $150,000 for the entire proposed project period of up to 24 months.
