Grants of up to $5,000 to Florida nonprofit and for-profit organizations in eligible counties for environmental stewardship and restoration activities. Funding is intended to support programs and projects in the areas of water quality, invasive species, habitat restoration, fish and wildlife, and public education. Funded projects must benefit the Tampa Bay Watershed, including Pinellas, Manatee, Hillsborough, and Pasco Counties.
Bay Mini-Grants are provided to community organizations in the Tampa Bay Watershed for projects that address restoration and education priorities in Tampa Bay. The goal of this grant program is to empower citizens to foster an environmental ethic and promote community stewardship of the bay.
Projects must address one or more of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) priorities: Clean waters and sediments; thriving habitats and abundant wildlife, and informed, engaged, and responsible community. Priority will be given to projects that expand the use of Green Infrastructure practices (SW-10). (For the CCMP Plan, see https://indd.adobe.com/view/cf7b3c48-d2b2-4713-921c-c2a0d4466632).
