The mission of EPA’s Urban Waters Program is to help local residents and their organizations, particularly those in underserved communities, restore their urban waters in ways that also benefit community and economic revitalization. For the 2015/2016 grant cycle, EPA seeks to fund projects that address urban runoff pollution through diverse partnerships that produce multiple community benefits, with emphasis on underserved communities.
Under this announcement, the EPA is soliciting proposals from eligible applicants for projects that will advance EPA’s water quality and environmental justice goals.
Proposals must be submitted electronically via Grants.gov (http://www.grants.gov) by 11:59P.M. EST on November 20, 2015.
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
- Foster partnership
Grants range from $40,000 to $60,000.
