Kitsap County Watershed Mini-Grant Awards Available
Watershed Mini-Grants Offered in Second Round of
Funding for 2009
(Port Orchard, WA) –
The Kitsap County Department of Community Development announced on Monday
the availability of a second 2009 Watershed Mini – Grant Program round. This
year, the Watershed Mini – Grants program offered grants up to $1,500 to
local groups for local environmental education, habitat restoration and
monitoring projects. A total of $2,000 remains available for 2009. Smaller
grant applications are also welcome up to $1,000.
In order to encourage groups new to watershed projects, those that have not
received a Watershed Mini-Grant in the past will be given some preference.
Projects should benefit a watershed (stream, wetland, lake, etc.) or Puget
Sound nearshore environment in unincorporated Kitsap County.
Youth, employee and conservation organizations, neighborhood groups, fishing
and service clubs, schools and businesses are encouraged to apply.
Applications and information are available on the Kitsap County web-site (www.kitsapgov.com/dcd/nr/stream_team/default.htm).
Completed applications must be received by 4:30 p.m., July 1, 2009.
