Grant Description

Grants to Connecticut nonprofit organizations in eligible communities to enhance the water quality of local water bodies and their watersheds. Funding may be used for activities such as research, public education, land purchases, environmental advocacy, and habitat restoration. Applicants must provide services within the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven's 20-town area: Ansonia, Bethany, Branford, Cheshire, Derby, East Haven, North Branford, North Haven, West Haven, Oxford, New Haven, Guilford, Hamden, Madison, Milford, Seymour, Shelton, Wallingford, Orange, and Woodbridge.

The mission of the Quinnipiac River Fund is to improve the environmental quality of the Quinnipiac River and New Haven Harbor and their watersheds. The committee considers projects for grant funding that work toward this goal. Examples include:

  1. Studying the pollution of the waterbodies.
  2. Studying the ecology of the waterbodies.
  3. Researching methods of reducing pollution, or otherwise improving the environmental health of the waterbodies.
  4. Addressing means of reducing both non-point and point sources of pollution to the waterbodies.
  5. Researching the permitting process, researching particular permits, and making recommendations as to findings.
  6. Providing public education about the waterbodies.
  7. Purchasing land in the watersheds for conservation, pollution reduction, and/or improving public access.
  8. Environmental advocacy.
  9. Habitat restoration.

Note: Projects involving the education of schoolchildren will be considered for grant funding only if they contribute to improving the environmental quality of the Quinnipiac River and its watershed.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

While each grant process has its own criteria, all applicants must be defined as tax-exempt organizations under Section 501(c)(3) or any applicable statute of the Internal Revenue code. While grants are occasionally made to governmental agencies, local nonprofits receive priority. Requests will be considered from groups that do not have tax-exemption status, provided that they have a fiscal agent with the appropriate tax status. In projects involving a partnership of agencies, a single agency with the appropriate tax status and financial management capacity must assume the role of lead organization.

Ineligible:

Individuals are not eligible for grants.

Funding cannot be used for litigation.

Projects that do not generally receive consideration
- Religious activities

- Lobbying
- Travel
