June 15, 2017, is the next deadline for grant proposals to the Virginia Environmental Endowment (VEE). Information about the VEE grant process is available online at http://www.vee.org/grant-programs-application/. VEE’s Virginia grant program accepts proposals twice a year (deadlines of June 15 and December 1) from nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organizations and institutions and governmental agencies for grants for specific projects that promise measurable results to improve the environment. In the Virginia program, grant priorities are water quality, the Chesapeake Bay, land conservation and use, environmental education and awareness, and other emerging issues.
VEE also has a grant program for the Kanawha and Ohio River valleys of Kentucky and West Virginia, intended to support research, education, and community action on water quality and its connections to public health and the environment. That program, which accepts proposals only once per year, also has a June 15 deadline.
Details on project requirements and the submission process are online at http://www.vee.org/grant-programs-application/proposal-requirements/.
Located in Richmond, VEE was started in 1977 with $8 million of the $13.2 million assessed on Allied Chemical Corporation for pollution of the James River with the pesticide Kepone from the company’s Hopewell, Va., plant. The organization’s main Web site is http://www.vee.org/.
