The Delaware Pathways to Green Schools mini grant cycle, funded by Energize Delaware and administered by Green Building United, is seeking proposals for projects that will advance sustainability goals while responding to the current challenges faced by online learning.

Energize Delaware will award grants up to $3,000 to school districts or schools to support green teams. Applicants must be registered in the Delaware Pathways to Green Schools program, which is free and voluntary.

“This funding is meant to help schools that don’t have the resources to take on extra sustainability projects. This year, we hope this funding can also go towards meeting the critical needs our teachers face amidst the ongoing coronavirus crisis,” said Suzanne Sebastion, Energize Delaware’s program manager. 

Since 2015, Energize Delaware has funded 48 projects, totaling $61,000, ranging from water bottle filling stations, solar-powered lighting, carpool programs, recycling initiatives, and more. 

Projects supporting the goals outlined below are encouraged:

  • Energy Use Reduction

  • Carbon Emission Reduction

  • Healthy Learning Environments

  • Environmental Justice

“In the wake of our current health crisis, climate change and it’s local impacts have not been put on hold. Facing a multitude of challenges requires innovative and creative solutions. These grants will enhance the work of students, teachers, and school communities as they navigate these pressing issues,” said LeAnne Harvey, Green Building United’s Pathways program manager. 

Applications are due on January 15, 2021, for this year’s Pathways to Green Schools mini grant cycle.
