Grants to North Carolina and South Carolina nonprofit organizations and government agencies for habitat creation, enhancement, and protection activities focused on the Catawba-Wateree River and its reservoirs. Funding is specifically intended for fish and wildlife habitat enhancement.

Projects eligible for funding include a wide range of categories – from planting native shoreline vegetation, the construction of osprey platforms and wood duck boxes, and the installation of fish attractors, to the purchase of property and conservation easements along the Catawba-Wateree River that permanently preserve rare and unique habitats.

Any government agency or tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization or any individual working through a tax-exempt organization may apply for funding.

HEP only accepts proposals for funding that are submitted from May 1 through July 31 of each year.

Before implementing any activities on Duke Energy’s lake property or within the FERC Project Boundary at Duke Energy lakes, you must apply for and receive a lake use permit.
