An exciting partnership opportunity from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Bay Watershed and Training (B-WET) program was shared at the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Summer Symposium attended by Emily Hagstrom. The funding requires grantees to partner with 21st CCLC program sites. B-WET regional funding opportunities provide hands-on watershed educational experiences for students and related professional development for teachers in support of regional education and environmental priorities.

Additionally, the National Parks Service, Institute of Museum and Library Service, and National Environmental Education Foundation all frequently release grants that require 21st CCLC or similar partner sites.

If you are an organization looking to apply for funding, contact us (716) 362-0627. We have evaluated B-WET and a wide variety of programs implemented with out-of-school time programs, and work with many 21st CCLC grantees.
