The Bay Area Air Quality Management District (“BAAQMD” or “Air District”) is offering small grants to teachers, student leaders, and parent leaders in public K-12 schools in the Bay Area. The maximum grant award is $2,500 for projects completed by June 30, 2020. The primary purpose of the grants is to increase knowledge about the science of air quality, the relationship between air quality and public health, and the impact of air pollution on the global climate. These grants will also serve to encourage collaborative partnerships between the Air District and school communities in air pollution reduction. Schools located in CARE (Community Air Risk Evaluation) or AB 617 communities will be prioritized for funding. The Air District will make grant funds available throughout the region each fiscal year pending Board approved budget allocations into the Community Grant Fund.
For all awarded projects, the grant period will be 12-15 months. The project must be completed within the time-period and all grant funds must be expended by June 30, 2020.
Applications are now being accepted and will be open until 5:00PM Thursday, January 31, 2019.
Air District staff will be holding a School Community Grants informational webinar on Thursday, January 17, from 1:00pm-2:00pm, during which prospective applicants can ask questions about their proposals.
