2021 Pacific Northwest Bay-Watershed Education and Training

for students, related professional development for teachers, and help to support regional education and environmental priorities in the Pacific Northwest.

The primary delivery is through competitive grants.

This year, the Pacific Northwest B-WET Notice of Funding Opportunity is modified to reflect the significant impact COVID-19 has had on the ability of environmental education providers to engage with schools and therefore meaningfully reach students and teachers.

The resulting loss of programs will have lasting repercussions on the targeted audiences of these programs and to the institutions who provide these services.

The NOAA B-WET program recognizes that support is needed to bridge this gap that has been created by the loss of revenue, the cancellation of programs, and the inequities that are being exacerbated by the pandemic.

As a major contributor to environmental education programs, the NOAA B-WET program is committed to responding to the immediate needs of this pandemic and supporting these critical institutions that provide meaningful experiences for youth at all levels.
