Urban Waters Small Grants can help people to restore local waters in ways that also benefit community and economic revitalization. For the 2015/2016 grant cycle, EPA seeks to fund projects that address stormwater pollution through diverse partnerships that produce multiple community benefits.
Eligible applicants include States, local governments, Indian Tribes, universities and colleges, nonprofit institutions/organizations and interstate agencies. Proposed activities must be within eligible areas shown on the Urban Waters Small Grants mapping website.
The EPA small grants can support local solutions that connect urban waters with improving the livability and economic health of the community. In general, projects should meet the following four program objectives:
- Address local water quality issues related to urban runoff pollution;
- Provide additional community benefits;
- Actively engage underserved communities; and
- Foster partnership.
