The City of Milton and Milton Grows Green are proud to announce the launch of a small grant program for environmental projects at local schools.
Environmental sustainability coordinator Cindy Eade said the awards of up to $500 per school are available through a grant application and awards process for both public and private institutions.
School 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 education, such as recycling, and storm water awareness, such as non-point source pollution and water conservation, that will benefit a large number of students in each school selected.
Grant applications are due no later than May 13, 2011. If awarded, funds must be used for projects to be completed by May 2012.
The determination of awards will be based on the project's focus and educational value, the number of students affected and the number of total grant applications received. Maximum of one grant award per school.
Applications should be faxed, mailed or e-mailed to:
City of Milton
13000 Deerfield Parkway. Suite 107 A
Milton GA 30004
