Building Capacity for Environmental Literacy: The purpose of this Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) is to build capacity for environmental literacy in support of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) mission goals through a cooperative agreement with a non-profit organization. In order to further the efforts of the external community that supports NOAA's environmental literacy-related priorities, NOAA is seeking a partnership with a nonprofit organization with a mission of environmental education and/or conservation to work with NOAA to implement formal and informal education efforts, outreach, and professional development in support of environmental literacy. The successful applicant will be supported through a 5-year cooperative agreement with NOAA and should have significant experience supporting environmental literacy, as well as capacity to convene meetings and workshops, manage small-scale grants, and support program evaluation. Experience facilitating partnerships, developing education and outreach materials, and implementing educator professional development is also preferred. Specific activities will be determined collaboratively with NOAA and will further the efforts of the external community to build environmental literacy through informal and formal education. Projects will support NOAA's mission in the areas of ocean, coastal, Great Lakes, weather, and climate sciences and stewardship as defined by the goals of the NOAA Education Strategic Plan 2015-2035 (http://www.noaa.gov/office-education/noaa-education-council/strategic-planning-evaluation). NOAA's education website (http://www.noaa.gov/education) provides more information about NOAA education activities and existing partnerships. Projects must be implemented within the United States and its territories. Eligible applicants are nonprofit organizations. For-profit organizations, individuals, state, local and Indian tribal governments in the United States, foreign institutions, foreign organizations and foreign government agencies, and institutions of higher education are not eligible to apply, but may be project partners. Federal agencies are not eligible to receive federal assistance under this announcement, but may be non-funded project partners. NOAA anticipates the availability of approximately $200,000 to $1,000,000 for each year over the five year period of FY 2018 to FY 2023 for this award, not to exceed a total award of $5,000,000 for all years.
