2013 marked the first year NEEF awarded Friends Groups up to $2,000 each to hold a minimum of three events. Twenty-six organizations were awarded funding to host events that are educational, recreational and/orvolunteer-based stewardship projects.
Applicants who receive an Every Day Event Grant will register their events on our Public Lands Every Day Events calendar. Sign up today and publish your organization's Every Day Events! NEEF would love to spread the word and highlight your organization's great work!
