Description: The NOAA Hawaii Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) program is a federal funding opportunity that meets NOAA's mission of science, service and stewardship. The Hawaii B-WET program supports a vision of a future where societies and ecosystems are healthy and resilient in the face of sudden or prolonged change. The purpose for this financial assistance is to support our communities by developing a well-informed citizenry involved in decision-making that positively impacts our coastal, marine, and watershed ecosystems in the State of Hawaii. This is a competitive opportunity for grants to assist in the development of new programs, encourage innovative partnerships among environmental education programs, and support geographically targeted programs to advance environmental education efforts that complement national and state school requirements. The Hawaii B-WET program plays a foundational role as an environmental education program that promotes locally relevant, experiential learning in the K-12 environment on priority topics such as understanding ocean, earth and atmospheric sciences, community resilience to hazards, and place-based environmental management. Funded projects provide meaningful watershed educational experiences for students, professional development for teachers, service-learning opportunities for students, and support regional education and environmental priorities.
