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.

For more information on the Watershed Mini – Grant program contact Kathlene Barnhart at 360.337.4601 or kbarnhar@co.kitsap.wa.us .
