EPA Accepting Proposals on Urban Waters Small Grants

EPA is accepting proposals and questions for its urban waters small grants. In December, the Agency announced that it will provide up to $1.8 million for projects across the country to protect Americans’ health and help restore urban waters by improving water quality and supporting community revitalization. The funding is part of EPA’s Urban Waters program, which supports communities in their efforts to access, improve, and benefit from their urban waters and the surrounding land. Urban waters are canals, rivers, lakes, wetlands, aquifers, estuaries, bays and oceans.

Funding proposals must be received by January 23, 2012 and the deadline for submitting questions is January 16, 2012. For more information and to view updated answers to frequently asked questions, visit http://www.epa.gov/urbanwaters/funding/.
