SWCDM is pleased to offer mini-grants up to $3,000 to help fund local education and outreach efforts that address nonpoint source water quality issues. Funding for these mini-grants is made available through the Montana Department of Environmental Quality’s federally funded 319 program. Mini-grants are available on a biannual basis (spring and fall) and funded projects need to occur within a year of being awarded.
The goal of the mini-grant program is to provide a mechanism to improve nonpoint source-related water quality through education and outreach activities at the local level. The priority of this program is to promote new activities and partnerships, not to sustain current activities.
All awarded projects shall be reimbursed the awarded amount upon completion of the project and submission of a final report and invoice.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
