Project Grant: The Project Grant Program provides grant awards ranging from $500 to $3,500 (USD) to be used for specific project expenses. Grassroots organizations engaging in advocacy activities and projects to protect local lakes, rivers, wetlands, and other aquatic habitats will be considered.
Climate Grant: In the Climate Funding Program, awards ranging from $500 to $5000 (USD) are provided to encourage local communities to actively engage in projects and promote decisionmaking that takes climate change related impacts into account. Projects should 1) identify how they will make your community better prepared to handle the impacts of climate change and 2) either communicate that information to the community, or work to incorporate climate change into local decision-making (permits, regulations, land use decisions, etc.). Additionally, Webinars and Climate Symposia will be offered to help train past, present and potential grant recipients in the subject of climate change and how they can effectively incorporate climate into their water related projects. Please email us at grants@ freshwaterfuture.org to be put on a priority notification list for these opportunities.
