If you have taken a Project Learning Tree workshop you are eligible for PLT’s GreenWorks! Grant program. It donates funding to schools and organizations across the country that involve students in community-based environmental projects. GreenWorks! is PLT’s service-learning program that engages PLT educators and their students with the local community in "learning-by-doing" neighborhood improvement projects. Since 1992, PLT has distributed more than $565,000 to fund 810 grant projects in communities across the country. Proposals for the Fall 2008 cycle of grants are due on Oct. 31, 2008. Grants up to $5,000 are available.
Coca-Cola/NRC Bin Grant Program
Need beverage container recycling bins for your local park, school, office or special event? The Coca-Cola/NRC Recycling Bin Grant Program supports local community recycling programs by providing selected grant recipients with containers for the collection of beverage container recyclables in public settings. Grant recipients will receive actual recycling bins instead of funding. The Fall 2008 grant application is open through Oct. 17. Applicants will be notified whether their proposal has been accepted on or before Nov. 14.
