TIMELY FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

  • The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is now accepting applications for the 2017 Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Program.  The Five Star and Urban Waters Program will award approximately $2.5 million in grants nationwide.  The Five Star and Urban Waters 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, watersheds and the species and habitats they support.  Projects include a variety of ecological improvements including: wetland, riparian, forest and coastal habitat restoration; wildlife conservation; community tree canopy enhancement; and/or water quality monitoring and stormwater management; along with targeted community outreach, education and stewardship.  Priority will be given to projects in urban, suburban and/or rural area that advance water quality goals in environmental justice communities such as neighborhoods with high concentrations of minority and low-income populations.  Projects that increase access to the benefits of nature, reduce the impact of environmental hazards and engage these communities in the project planning, outreach and implementation will have priority for funding.  Applications are due to January 31st.  For more information visit the NFWF website.
  • Exelon's Environment Program supports projects that improve the quality of our environment; promote environmental education, conservation and preservation; develop cleaner sources of energy; protect endangered species; and beautify neighborhoods.  Will fund projects located within communities where they work (ie Holtwood).  For more information visit the Exelon website.
