Wednesday August 1st, 2018
Does your township have an environmental program that provides education for young people? If so, you might want to consider applying for a GreenWorks grant from Project Learning Tree (PLT).
 
Grants of up to $1,000 are available for service-learning projects that improve the environment or restore natural habitats. The deadline for applications is September 30, and funding will be distributed in December.
 
Funding will support such activities as planting community gardens, starting composting and recycling programs, and restoring or improving native habitats. Here are the eligibility criteria:
 
• Projects must be completed in one year.
 
• Applicants must have attended a Project Learning Tree workshop, either online or in person.
 
• The proposed project must involve service learning, exemplify student leadership and cooperation, and involve at least one community partner.
 
• The project must secure at least 50 percent in matching funds or in-kind support.
