Funding partners seek projects that improve aesthetics of communities and treat the stormwater runoff that comes from various types of properties, resulting in less of a negative impact of this runoff on the County’s local streams, rivers, and other natural resources where community residents live and recreate.
Projects must:
- Accomplish on-the-ground restoration that will result in improvements in water quality and watershed health (reduction in loads of nitrogen, phosphorous and/or sediment); and/or
- Significantly engage members of the public in the environmental resource of the County by promoting citizen awareness and engagement.

As part of an effort to more fully engage underrepresented groups in its grant-making, the Trust strongly encourages projects that increase awareness and participation of multicultural communities to improve watershed health and local ecological ownership.
