Foundation / Corporation
Florida Association for Water Quality Control (FAWQC)
Grants of up to $1,000 to Florida schools and civic and community organizations for environmental projects addressing water-related issues. Funding is intended for projects that are cost effective, are based on sound scientific principles, enhance water resources and habitats, involve community members, and foster awareness and understanding of a water-related issue.
The grant applications are evaluated based on the proposed project’s overall environmental value as to:
1. Fostering awareness and understanding of a water-related issue (e.g., water cycle, pollution, water conservation, etc.);
2. Being cost effective (e.g., utilizing existing or donated materials, materials that can be re-used, etc.);
3. Basing the project on sound science principles (e.g. State or Federal learning resources, Standard Operating Procedures, scientific methods, etc.;
4. Promoting involvement of students or citizens including the expected number of students/citizens that will be directly impacted by the project and how they will be impacted (e.g., data collection, measurements, presentations, demonstrations, posters, workshops, etc.); and,
5. Promoting enhancement of a water resource or associated habitat (e.g. innovative ideas to solve a water-related problem, application of environmental concepts, environmental signage, etc.).
