The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities seeks applications for the 2019 Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program. This program is a partnership that includes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Water’s Office of Wetlands, Oceans, and Watersheds, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Endowment. Up to $1.2 million is available for the 2019 grant round. The goal of the Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program is to accelerate strategic protection of healthy, freshwater ecosystems and their watersheds. The primary focus for applicants should be protection and stewardship of land in the watershed, not restoration of degraded habitats or projects with a strictly water-quality improvement outcome.
Proposals are due by February 4, 2019.
