FY18 Chesapeake B-WET Grant Availability Announced

The NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office has released details of the FY18 Chesapeake Bay-Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) program funding opportunity. A total of roughly $1,000,000, subject to appropriations, may be available to fund 8-10 new projects.

Applications are due by March 9, 2018. The full Federal Funding Opportunity is now available; it includes comprehensive information about eligibility and the application process.

B-WET supports programs that provide hands-on environmental education about issues affecting the Chesapeake Bay watershed for students and related professional development for educators who serve formal K-12 audiences.

FY18 grants will focus on expanding the reach of Chesapeake B-WET into school districts that have never received funding for systemic programs--especially districts in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and West Virginia, which have been historically underrepresented in funding support.

Organizations applying for B-WET funding should access important documents such as the Budget Template and Environmental Literacy Model.

Information on the B-WET Chesapeake program, including examples of education partnerships that have been funded to date, is available. Contact  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions.
