FY2019-FY2018 NOAA New England Bay Watershed Education and Training (New England B-WET) Program: NOAA's Bay Watershed Education and Training Program (B-WET) is an environmental education program that promotes locally relevant, experiential learning focused on K-12 students and their classroom teachers. This competitive grant program promotes Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (“MWEEs”), B-WET's signature methodology which include multi-stage activities, in the classroom and outdoors, to increase environmental literacy of all participants. New England B-WET is one of NOAA's seven (7) regional, B-WET environmental education programs. New England B-WET promotes high quality environmental education, fosters innovative programs, and encourages capacity-building and environmental education partnerships within the six New England States: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Successful projects advance ocean, climate, and other environmental literacy goals and incorporate the goals of the NOAA Education Strategic Plan (https://noaa.gov/explainers/noaa-education-strategic-plan) through (1) student, hands-on environmental education in New England watersheds and (2) formal kindergarten through grade 12 teacher and administrator professional development and support during student MWEEs. Proposals submitted to this competition must address and identify one of the two priorities: (1) Backyard B-WET: Investigation of Stewardship and Habitat Restoration on School Grounds, and (2) Grass Roots: Community Resilience in Changing Times. This Federal funding opportunity includes information on the application process and evaluation criteria for proposals which may request up to $240,000 in Federal funding for up to three (3) years. There is no required match contribution, and match contributions will NOT be considered as a criterion for evaluating applications.
