Environmental Enhancement and Education Grants

Competitive grants are awarded to community-based organizations to provide environmental enhancement and education projects within Miami-Dade County. The program is aimed at County residents to heighten their awareness of Miami-Dade County’s fragile environment.

By partnering with community-based organizations, the grants allow the funding departments to reach populations they would not normally reach. The Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department, the Department of Solid Waste Management and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources finance the program from their operating budgets.
