These grants provide start-up funding for community-oriented projects that improve the District’s waterways. Ideal projects should raise awareness and lead to behavior change around the impacts of stormwater runoff on the District’s water bodies.  This year, there are two special focus areas for these grants:

  1. projects that support restoration of and access to Kingman and Heritage Islands, including engagement with surrounding communities
  2. restoration projects in DOEE’s Targeted Subwatersheds.

There is $200,000 available. DOEE anticipates awarding multiple grants of up to $20,000 each. Applications must be submitted online by 6:00pm on January 25, 2019. The Request for Funding Availability (RFA) contains a link to the online application.
