Grant Writing for Schools

Virtual workshop hosted on October 29th, 2020.


Looking for funds for your school garden, outdoor learning space, or other school wellness project? Grant writing can seem daunting, but we will de-mystify the process and share the "do's and don'ts" of grant writing. Many school grants are currently open this Fall 2020 that you may want to apply to, including the DOE Sustainability Project Grant to NYC Public Schools that is due November 17, 2020.
