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
The goal of the mini-grant program is to provide support for locally-led education and outreach activities that address nonpoint sources of pollution to Montana’s surface waters. A priority of this program is to promote new educational activities and development or improvement of partnerships. The mini-grant program is not intended 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.
