Grants ranging from $20,000 to $50,000 to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and educational institutions to build community capacity to protect natural resources. Funding is intended to support a range of local partnerships working to enhance water quality, watersheds, and the species and habitats they support. This program expects that applicants will represent a mixture of urban and rural communities. Projects include a variety of ecological improvements along with targeted community outreach, education and stewardship.
