Does your organization or school have a project you feel could improve our waterways and keep them clean? The Sacramento County Department of Water Resources (DWR) could help you make that project come to life. The window has opened for submission to the 2017-2018 Watershed Stewardship and Education Grant program.

Schools and community groups are encouraged to review program requirements and submit applications to the Stormwater Quality Program for review. This is the thirteenth year DWR has funded environmental efforts to protect our waterways.

The grant is open to the following: schools and student groups; service clubs, youth organizations; homeowner’s associations; community and neighborhood groups; not-for-profit groups; and informal groups with innovative ideas. Individuals and for-profit groups are not eligible.

DWR will offer up to $2,500 for each project chosen for the grant. The amount will depend on the needs of the organization. Last year’s grant winners included Will Rogers Elementary, Mira Loma High and Sierra Oaks School. This will also be the first year the grant will be available to non-profit community groups.

The final date to apply is July 1, 2017. Eligible projects must be located within the Sacramento County Stormwater Utility Boundaries or directly affect the residents of these areas. For more information, please review the application to determine if your project is eligible on the Stormwater Quality Program page.

If you have additional questions about the 2017-2018 Watershed Stewardship and Education Grant program, contact Jeanette Huddleston, 916-874-4711.
