Grants of up to $20,000 to Washington, DC nonprofit and faith-based organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and private enterprises to enhance and protect watersheds and water bodies within the District. Priority is given to projects that encourage the direct participation of underrepresented communities.
All applications submitted under this RFA must describe a project that aims to educate a priority audience, increase knowledge, or lead to behavior change that ultimately improves the health of the Districts waterways, including reducing the impacts of stormwater runoff.
The goals of the Community Stormwater Solutions Grant Program are to protect and enhance, directly or indirectly, the District of Columbia’s water bodies or watersheds. This Program is designed to support efforts that raise awareness and lead to behavior change around watershed- and stormwater-related issues, through education, installation and maintenance of runoff-reducing green infrastructure, art installations, or another means described in the below “Eligible Project Types” section.
The Program provides funding for innovative, community-oriented and –inspired projects aimed at improving water quality in the District, reducing litter, and raising awareness about what citizens can do to restore our rivers, streams, and parks. Additionally, the Program supports community partners through capacity-building initiatives.
Eligible Project Types - While DOEE and the Trust welcome projects that focus on these areas, applicants are also encouraged to propose their own ideas even if they do not fit into one of the ideas provided.
