Foundation for MetroWest (FFMW) - MetroWest Fund for the Environment
08/05/19 5:00 PM
Grants of up to $7,000 to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations to support and promote the conservation of local waters in the MetroWest region. Funding may be requested for research, advocacy, infrastructure and the inclusion of traditionally under-represented voices.
The Foundation for MetroWest especially seeks to support:
- Those concepts that create efficiencies as a result of encouraging multi-stakeholder collaboration or reducing duplication of services
- Community-based solutions that have a smaller likelihood of receiving grant funding from other sources
- Inspire behavior changes and lower barriers to community participation in environmental work
Potential projects may include, but by no means are limited to:
- Efforts to achieve measurable improvements to the quality of water in our region
- Integration of under-represented voices into the environmental dialogue and movement
- Green infrastructure practices within an area to determine their effectiveness in managing storm water and sewer overflows
- Research and advocacy work for uniform water management practices
- Practitioner engagement in local conservation efforts: E.g., effective design, management, and implementation of storm water and water regulations or providing technical expertise to local towns as they develop vulnerability plans
