Grants are available at three levels: (1) traditional grants for projects led by educators, students, or other youth-group leaders that have attended a PLT workshop (workshop information available by state on the PLT site), (2) grants for schools involved in the USFS ClimateChangeLIVE Program, and (3) grants to public and private schools that are registered PLT GreenSchools! (registration is free online). In addition to those requirements, there are a number of others to be eligible for a grant, including obtaining a community partner and at least 50 percent matching funds or in-kind donations (materials and volunteer time) toward the project costs.
