Generations United (GU), a program that focuses on improving the lives of children, youths, and older persons through intergenerational strategies, is the winner of the EPA’s Intergenerational Environmental Health Education and Outreach Project.

The $100,000 grant program encourages the improvement of environmental health in urban and rural communities and will help fund pilot projects all over the country.

The funding will allow GU to provide small grants addressing intergenerational environmental health, to provide information and technical assistance to grant recipients, and to produce results from the projects to identify project models and practices for wider use.

GU represents more than 100 national, state, and local organizations, which, in turn, represent 70 million Americans, and its mission is “to improve the lives of children, youth, and older people through intergenerational collaboration, public policies, and programs for the enduring benefit of all.”
