Green Street – Green Jobs Grants Available

The Watershed Assistance Grant Program, which is supported by the Chesapeake Bay Trust, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the Maryland Department of the Environment, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency, is seeking grant applications for green street/green infrastructure projects and practices focused on nonpoint pollution reduction and green stormwater management retrofits that also create green jobs in urban areas.  Grant requests are typically for up to $35,000 although Bay Trust staff may authorize a higher amount after consultation.

Local governments and non-profit organizations in urbanized watersheds located in the Chesapeake Bay region of Maryland and the Anacostia Watershed within Washington are invited to submit requests for consideration.  The application deadline is September 24.
