Grants to Maryland nonprofits, community associations, faith-based organizations, and landowners in eligible locations for activities to restore local watersheds and enhance water quality. Applicants must contact the funding source to arrange a staff visit prior to applying. Applications are encouraged from underrepresented groups. Eligible applicants are located in Anne Arundel County, including the City of Annapolis.
The Anne Arundel County Watershed Restoration Grant Program encourages on-the-ground restoration activities that reduce storm flow and pollutants and that engage residents in the restoration and protection of the local rivers and streams of Anne Arundel County.
This grant program now accepts applications for restoration projects located in the City of Annapolis and includes a new Category for the County’s potential acquisition of non-tidal flood prone and/or natural resource rich properties!
The Anne Arundel County Watershed Restoration Grant Program will fund projects to reduce pollutants through the implementation of watershed restoration practices. Projects must accomplish on-the-ground restoration that treats rainwater runoff from impervious surfaces at a cost-effective price or demonstrates the accomplishment of another metric that will help the County meet local water quality and runoff reduction improvement goals. Applications under this grant program that demonstrate sound design and cost efficiency in meeting this goal will be most competitive. To demonstrate this, applicants will be required to provide sound technical designs and project budgets as outlined in the application package.
The Trust strongly encourages applications directly from underrepresented groups, and for projects that increase awareness and participation of communities that are traditionally underrepresented, such as communities of color.
