By Alan Gray

Earth Day 2006 is Saturday, April 22.

EPA Region 7 is making financial assistance available to help communities celebrate Earth Day 2006 in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

Proposals from local agencies, state agencies, environmental groups, and not-for-profit organizations are welcomed. Proposals should range from $500 to $2,500 and can celebrate Earth Day throughout the year.

Instructions and criteria are available on the Region 7 Web site at:

Proposals are due by Monday, March 6. Earth Day financial assistance notification will be made by late March to recipients only. Recipients will be required to submit a final report at the completion of the project summarizing their Earth Day accomplishments.
