Planning Grants

CRWD’s Planning Grants provide financial assistance for feasibility and design of cost-effective and/or innovative clean water projects that protect and improve the water quality of waterbodies within CRWD. Visit the About CRWD page and scroll down to view a map of the District. Typical projects funded through this program include feasibility studies and engineering services to identify, prioritize, and design capital improvement projects that include benefits to natural resources. Planning Grants will typically provide much of the information needed to apply for construction funds through CRWD’s Clean Water Project Grant.

Eligible applicants include public, private, and non-profit organizations working on a project located in CRWD. The average grant award is $20,000 and applications are accepted at any time.
