Overview of the New England B-WET FY2023 funding opportunity priorities and application process.
New England B-WET is an environmental education program that funds locally relevant, authentic experiential learning for K-12 audiences through Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs; defined below) in New England states.
The FY23 New England B-WET funding announcement focuses on projects combining long-term, classroom-integrated MWEEs for students and teacher professional development. Applicants may be physically located in any U.S. state; however, projects must target students and teachers in the New England region. For the purposes of this solicitation, the New England region includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
This New England B-WET funding announcement emphasizes our strong commitment to expanding the participation of marginalized communities in watershed education and is interested in projects that partner specifically with organizations and institutions that serve marginalized groups, including minority communities. And, it suggests that the MWEE framework can contribute to fostering an understanding of how watersheds are connected to coastal and offshore Atlantic fisheries and protected species stewardship, as well as contribute to climate change and resilience education that support climate solutions.
During this informational webinar, the New England B-WET coordinator will explain the FY 2023 New England B-WET funding opportunity application requirements and processes.
