We are awarding grants to support projects that implement green infrastructure to address local environmental challenges. These include: access to healthy food, air quality, heat island effect, climate change, and storm water collection. Our goal is to support young people who work as social innovators to help their communities through project design and implementation.

Grants of $2,000 will be awarded up to 50 public or charter schools across the United States (minus U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa). See the detailed grant description linked on this page for full requirements, guidelines, important dates, and online application information. Samples of an application, an applicant commitment letter, and an administration letter of support are also available.

Applications must be submitted online by 5 PM ET October 5, 2018.
