Spring 2021 Community and Planning Grants – Info Sessions and Application Deadlines Announced

Stewardship Fund Grants provide an opportunity for local organizations and businesses to help the environment, engage individuals and communities, and build partnerships to improve water quality and habitat.

This spring, the MWMO is accepting applications for Community Grants and Planning Grants. Application deadlines and links to program details can be found below.

Community Grants (formerly Mini Grants)

Applications due by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 2, 2021

This grant type is for short-term or small-scale water quality projects. To better reflect the purpose of the funding, the Mini Grant name was recently changed to Community Grant, and the funding cap was increased from $3,000 to $5,000. No matching funds are required.

Learn more on our Community Grants page.

Planning Grants

Applications due by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 12, 2021

This grant type is for planning a stewardship project significant in scope and cost. The Planning Grant cap was recently increased from $10,000 to $20,000 to better reflect costs for design development in preparation for project implementation. A 25 percent funding match is required.

Learn more on our Planning Grants page.
