Grants available for Evergreen School members.

Courtesy City of Milton

Grants of up to $250 are now available for Milton public and private schools looking to help fund environmental education programs. Applicants must be current members of the Milton Evergreen School Program for 2012-2013.

Principals, PTA officers, teachers, club sponsors and school volunteers are encouraged to submit project applications. Projects are encouraged, but not required, to focus on solid waste reduction and water conservation education that will benefit a large number of students in each school selected. Projects related to issues such as recycling, or education about storm water awareness and non-point source pollution are strongly encouraged.

Grant applications are due no later than Jan. 18, 2013. If awarded, funds must be used for projects to be completed by Sept. 30, 2013. The determination of the award to a school will be based on the project's focus and educational value, the number of students affected and the number of total grant applications received. There is a maximum of one grant award per school.

This project is jointly administered by Milton Grows Green and the City of Milton. Applications should be mailed, e-mailed or faxed to:

Cindy Eade Sustainability Coordinator, City of Milton 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107A Milton GA 30004 678.242.2509 (o), 678.242.2499 (f)
