Summarized in this pamphlet are the U.S. Office of Education grants for 1972 in the field of environmental education. Grants were made in each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Micronesia. Among the 162 grants totaling $2,999,040.00, most were made under the Environmental Education Act (P.L. 91-516), though some were funded under P.L. 90-35 (the Education Professions Development Act) and one was awarded under the Cooperative Research Act (P.L. 83-531). Tabulated by regions and States, the breakdown indicates Region V (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin) received the greatest cash total and had the highest number of funded proposals--31. Among individual States, New York and California were the sources of the most proposals (214 and 194), received the most awards (12 and 11), and the greatest cash totals ($206,900 and $205,250). Tables indicate awards by region and State, categories (workshops; statewide evaluation and dissemination; pilot projects--personnel training, community awareness, instruction and curriculum, evaluation and dissemination), comparisons with 1971 awards, and types of organizations funded. The final compilation lists each project individually, giving its complete title, name of director, name of organization and address. (BL)
