Grants are available in three award levels:

3) GreenWorks! grants up to $2,000 for registered PLT GreenSchools!

GreenWorks! is PLT's service-learning program that engages PLT educators and their students with their local community in "learning-by-doing" school and neighborhood improvement projects. Project Learning Tree (PLT) awards GreenWorks! grants to schools and organizations across the country to involve students in community-based environmental projects.

Since 1992, PLT has helped fund nearly 1,000 GreenWorks! projects across the country. Elementary, middle, high school and college students are planting trees, designing native plant gardens, restoring streams and riparian habitats, constructing hiking trails, starting composting projects, and investigating alternative sources of energy, among other projects.
