Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC. Office of Environmental Education.
Summarized in this pamphlet are the U.S. Office of Education grants for 1973 in the field of environmental education. Fifty-four projects designed to enhance environmental literacy and promote understanding of contemporary ecological problems were awarded $1,180,125 in federal grants, ranging from $1,010 to $64,000. Funded under the Environmental Education Act of 1970 (P.L. 91-516), the projects are located in 32 states and the District of Columbia. They focus on four priority areas--resource materials development, personnel development, community education, and elementary and secondary education. Programs generally deal with junior and senior high school levels (grades 7-12) and nonformal community education groups and organizations. Included in the awards are 18 mini-grants of $10,000 or less to be used for workshops, conferences, or seminars that will assist local communities in acquiring an understanding of the causes, effects, issues, and options surrounding local environmental problems. The recipients are state and local education agencies, community colleges, colleges and universities, and private educational and environmental organizations. The compilation lists each project individually by state, giving its complete title, name of director, name of organization and address, a brief description of the project, and amount of federal support.
