U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities Invites Proposals for Healthy Watersheds Program

The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities (Endowment) seeks applications for the 2018 Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program. This opportunity closes Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.

The Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program is a partnership that includes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Water’s Office of Wetlands, Oceans, and Watersheds, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Endowment. Applicants are strongly urged to contact Peter Stangel (peter@usendowment.org; 404-915-2763) or Jeff Lerner (jalanlerner@gmail.com; 202-236-1883) to discuss project ideas before submitting an application. Competition for funds is stiff. In 2017, 74 proposals were received and 16 funded. In 2018 priority will be given to proposals that maximize measureable outcomes for watershed protection (e.g. acres protected, progress toward protection goals, degree of watershed function protected, etc.). More information is available in the grant application guidelines.
