This is at the heart of the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio’s AEP Access to Environmental Education Mini-Grant program.

The 2018 AEP Access to Environmental Education Mini-Grant program encourages nonprofit and public organizations throughout the 32 counties of Appalachian Ohio to grow projects that support youth in learning about the environment, especially local natural resources. Grant funding will also support youth in sharing their lessons learned with their communities.

Grant awards ranging from $500 to $1,500 will be available to support environmental education projects throughout the region. Applications are now available online and the deadline to apply is Wednesday, November 14, 2018.
