EPA Gives $30,938 Grant to Missouri Environmental Education Association

EPA Region 7 has awarded the Missouri Environmental Education Association in Columbia, Mo., an environmental education grant totaling $30,938. This is one of six grants being awarded to schools, universities and organizations in the Agency’s four-state region to fund the development of new environmental education projects. The execution of these environmental education projects will further EPA’s commitment to protecting human health and the environment.

Educating our communities on environmental issues is crucial to creating a safe and healthy environment for children to learn and grow,” said Karl Brooks, regional administrator. “The diversity of the proposals selected shows the commitment of the people of Region 7 to producing and sustaining a healthy environment.” 

The Missouri Environmental Education Association will use this grant to conduct research of current environmental education curriculum and establish a comprehensive knowledge base of environmental issues. The grant will be used to increase understanding and use of nationally aligned environmental education standards by agencies, organizations, classroom teachers and schools.

The Environmental Education Grant program provides seed money for new projects and assistance to advance existing projects. The projects increase public awareness of environmental issues and provide the skills to take responsible actions to protect the environment.
