Community Stewardship Grants in Alameda County
Submitted By Stefanie Pruegel
Grants up to $5,000 are provided by the Clean Water Program to encourage grassroots community action that prevents stormwater pollution and enhances the health of local watersheds, creeks, and the San Francisco Bay. The Community Stewardship Grant Program (CSGP) was established for teachers and student groups, community and environmental groups, youth organizations, homeowners associations to conduct projects that support the grant program goals.
CSGP provides resources for projects in Alameda County or within an Alameda County watershed that contain a stormwater pollution prevention message and a community/public outreach element. Sample projects could include (but are not limited to): outreach and education projects with a stormwater pollution prevention message, art projects, creekside restoration/revegetation projects, wildlife habitat projects, stormwater detention projects and development of outreach materials.
Proposals are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 23, 2012.
