The EPOC Scholarship/Grant Committee will review each application. The applications will be judged against the environmental benefits of the project and compared to the other grant submittals. Environmental benefits can vary widely and successful applications may include projects that improve the environment, such as: property and watershed clean-ups, reforestation efforts, biodiversity projects, streamside buffer restoration projects and hazardous waste collection efforts. Also proposals that promote environmental education within Connecticut or monitor environmental conditions of watersheds or ecosystems are acceptable.
All applicants are expected to include specific measurable goals for projects in their proposals. Grant awards are subject to a Memorandum of Understanding between EPOC and the Grantee that documents the grant use, goals and conditions. At the conclusion of the grant project, the grantee must provide a written report on the project results/impacts. This report should be submitted no later than December 1st of the year in which the grant was awarded.
Please complete the application (see above), and feel free to include an addendum of any additional information that you feel is relevant to the project including information on your organization.
If you have any questions, please contact Seth Molofsky.
