KWPB&S Green Schools Grant Program

The City of Winter Park’s Keep Winter Park Beautiful & Sustainable (KWPB&S) Advisory Board Green Schools Grant Program awards mini grants to schools serving Winter Park to help support their efforts to achieve sustainability goals and beautify their campus while engaging and educating students Pre-K through grade 12 in the practices of sustainability. In addition, KWPB&S Winners receive funding to cover the cost of USGBC Green Classroom Professional Certification.

The 2022 KWPB&S Green School Grant Program will reopen late Fall 2021. For updates, please check back or sign up for the Sustainability Program eList.
