The Chesapeake Bay Small Watershed Grants (SWG) Program provides grants of $20,000 to $200,000 to organizations and local governments working on a local level to implement protects that improve small watersheds in the Chesapeake Bay basin, while building citizen-based resource stewardship. The program also provides small grants for project planning and design. This program is funded by EPA’s Chesapeake Bay Program Office, as well as by NOAA Fisheries, USDA Forest Service, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, and other sponsors.
The RFP for the 2009 Small Watershed Grants Program is now live on the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation website, at www.nfwf.org/smallwatershed, where you will find information about the program, how to apply, and a link for the webinar we will conduct on Monday, March 16 at 12 noon.
