The Montgomery County Watershed Restoration and Outreach Grant program, offered by the Montgomery County Government and the Chesapeake Bay Trust, is now accepting proposals to support watershed restoration and outreach throughout Montgomery County.
The Montgomery County Watershed Restoration and Outreach Grant Program encourages small-scale on-the-ground restoration practices like rain gardens and permeable pavement to reduce stormwater runoff and pollutants through community-based restoration. Equally, outreach and stewardship activities engaging Montgomery County residents in the restoration and protection of the local rivers and streams of Montgomery County are highly encouraged.
This funding opportunity is made possible through the County’s Water Quality Protection Charge and is available for projects throughout Montgomery County for grant awards of up to $100,000. The Trust welcomes applicants from 501©3 non-profit organizations such as community associations, faith-based organizations, youth, and civic groups, watershed organizations, and others. Nonprofits and communities with property in common ownership are strongly encouraged to apply. More information is available by visiting the Chesapeake Bay Trust website.
Deadline: September 27th, 2018 at 4pm
