Grant to a Washington, DC nonprofit organization, private enterprise, faith-based organization, university, or educational institution to evaluate, improve, and expand programs that aim to protect the environment. By enhancing these existing programs, funding is intended to support the preservation of District watersheds and water bodies, promote a green economy, and encourage environmental and social entrepreneurship.
Background About the Community Stormwater Solutions Grants:
These DOEE grants support projects that meet the Program’s objectives to (1) Reduce water pollution from trash and polluted runoff, (2) raise water quality awareness, (3) promote behavior changes in District community members, and (4) support the District’s emerging green economy, environmental start-ups, and social entrepreneurs.
DOEE is seeking proposals to evaluate the Community Stormwater Solutions Grants Program, research best practices, work with DOEE to enhance the Program, manage the improved Program by awarding subgrants, and expand the Program’s effectiveness. The successful applicant will consult with DOEE to determine special focus areas for each funding year’s Program.
