Grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 and one significantly larger grant to USA nonprofit organizations for projects that address water-related issues. Smaller grants are intended for STEAM projects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) that address the issue of water scarcity. Such projects fall into the Track 1 category, are one year in duration, and must be located in a state where Woodard and Curran Inc. either has an office or operates a treatment facility, specifically: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, and Wyoming.

Additionally, a Track 2 Impact Grant of $100,000 will be awarded to an organization that operates nationally or internationally for a three-year innovative project that applies or advances technology to address water (e.g. water, wastewater, stormwater, etc.) issues relating to climate change. A letter of interest is due by July 1, 2017, with the full application due September 15, 2017.
