      Denver -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in September awarded $39,000 in grants to help fund three environmental education projects in Utah.
“Some of the most significant work accomplished in environmental protection happens at the state and local level,” said EPA’s Region 8 Administrator, Robert E. Roberts. “We are pleased to be able to offer this financial assistance to support the worthy and important environmental education projects in the states.”

The Environmental Education Grant Program is sponsored by the EPA's Office of Environmental Education. Since 1992, EPA Region 8 awards about $180,000 each year in grant funding for environmental education programs.
