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.
