Proposals Now Being Accepted for 2018 Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grants

Five star

The Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration program is now accepting grant proposals  for 2018, and expects to award approximately $2 million in grants nationwide. The program is being directed by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and the Wildlife Habitat Council, in cooperation with the EPA, the US Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, FedEx and Southern Company. The grant program seeks to develop community capacity to sustain local natural resources for future generations by providing modest financial assistance to diverse local partnerships focused on improving water quality (including protecting drinking water sources), watersheds and the species and habitats they support. Projects include a variety of ecological improvements along with targeted community outreach, education and stewardship, and will represent a mixture of urban and rural communities. Proposals are due by Wednesday, January 31, 2018 and awards will be announced in July 2018. For more information, view the Request for Proposals and visit the NFWF website.
