Partner Grants

Partner Grants fund programs led by community, arts and environmental organizations, schools and faith-based groups that educate and promote clean water actions. Grants are awarded once a year in December for the following year, and awards typically range from $2,000 to $20,000. Programs must occur within CRWD’s boundaries (enter your address in the map HERE to see if it’s in CRWD) to be eligible for funding. Partner grant agreement requirements include insurance requirements, submittal of a final report including high resolution photos of your project or program and grant funds are distributed following completion and reporting of your project. CRWD’s Partner Grant Review Committee may determine to fully or partially fund your proposal.

Reporting and Reimbursements

Grant funding can be used to reimburse staff time and supplies for a program or project. A final report must be submitted by year-end, and include receipts or invoices for funded tasks, photography and a written report describing project or program outcomes prior to reimbursement.

All grantees must report general information about program input and outcomes. Priority is given to applicants who propose ways to measure program impacts to residents. These impact metrics may include actions taken, educational outcomes and changes in water quality protection behaviors.
