||Every Day Capacity Building Grants provide Friends Groups with grant funds of up to $5,000 to help build their capacity to serve public lands.
The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), with generous support from Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc., seeks to strengthen these organizations and unleash their potential to serve their public lands. NEEF's Every Day Grants will strengthen the stewardship of public lands by strengthening Friends Groups through funding for organizational capacity building.
If a Friends Group can better engage the public, it can attract more volunteers. If it can attract more volunteers, it has a larger base of individuals to ask for support. If it can gain more support, it can offer more volunteer events.
Every Day Capacity Building applications are accepted year-round. Applications that are submitted between November 1 and April 30 will be reviewed and grants awarded in the summer. Applications that are submitted between May 3 and October 30 will be reviewed and grants awarded in late winter. If a due date falls on the weekend or federal holiday, applications will be due the following business day.
Applications for the Summer 2016 round of Capacity Building Grants are due May 2 by 11:59PM CT.
