Somerset, KY - Eastern Kentucky PRIDE has extended the deadline for 2016-17 Environmental Education grants to October 31, 2016. Educators from across PRIDE's service region are encouraged to apply for these funds to help expand environmental awareness in our region.

The funds can be used for a variety of educational activities that achieve the objectives of the PRIDE Environmental Education Grant Program, which are:
The grant amount will be up to $2750. The grant will be awarded to the school board or nonprofit organization that represents the eligible applicant.
