Green Grants

You’ve heard the buzz spreading across the world about green grants. Global green grant money is now being offered by just about all federal government systems across the planet as well as nonprofit foundations. There are even foundations and agencies which only offer what is now known as green money.

People in populated and developed countries across the world have come to realize that if we as a species don’t take action now to both make use of and conserve our natural resources; we will suffer unimaginable consequences in the near future.

Government green grants are offered by several agencies within the U.S. federal government grants system. The Green Grants Program sponsored by EPA’s Office of Environmental Education; Office of External Affairs and Environmental Education, supports environmental education projects that enhance the public’s awareness, knowledge, and skills to help people make informed decisions that affect environmental quality. EPA awards grants each year based on funding appropriated by Congress. Annual green grant funding for the program ranges between two and three million dollars spread across the federal agency spectrum.

The EPA sponsored PEYA program promotes awareness of our nation’s natural resources and encourages positive community involvement. Since 1971, the President of the United States has joined with EPA to recognize young citizens across the U.S. for protecting our nation’s air quality, water cleanliness, land ecology, and climate stability. It is one of the most important ways EPA and the Administration demonstrate commitment to environmental stewardship efforts created and conducted by our nation’s young people.

The State Energy Program provides green grant money to states and directs funding to state energy offices from technology programs in the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. Individual states use government green grants to address their specific energy priorities and program funding to adopt emerging renewable energy using energy efficiency technologies. The State Energy Program combines Department of Energy’s renewable energy expertise with the local insight of individual state needs across a panorama of energy-related projects.

Private foundations and nonprofits also know the value of protecting our nation’s air quality, water cleanliness, land ecology, and climate stability. Green grants for nonprofits are becoming widely available for use in education, new food production techniques, research methods and more. Private not for profit organizations now offer what is called global green grants. Understanding full well that if all nations across the globe fail to work together to conserve our natural resources, major initiates have been underway for some time now. With a concentration on ecology, renewable energy sources and clean, breathable air in the developing world where resources and lands are exploited without regard for the people who depend on those resources, the global green grants fund invests in local national leaders calling for environmental justice in their own communities.

People in currently developed as well as developing countries across the world have come to realize that if we as a species don’t take action right now to conserve our natural resources, our nation is headed for real trouble. If you have a need for green grant money all you have to do is look!
