Community Impact: Managing Water in Philadelphia
Proposals Due by 5:00 p.m. EST, August 14, 2014
Penn State Public Media (PSPM), in collaboration with Fairmount Water Works Education Center and The Penn State Center: Engaging Philadelphia is excited to announce a mini grant initiative, “Community Impact: Managing Water in Philadelphia.”
Grants, made available with funding from the William Penn Foundation, will support projects within the Philadelphia region (Schuylkill and Delaware Watersheds) that address water issues using green infrastructure and include an educational component.
Grants of $500 to $2,000, based on the scope of the project, will be awarded on a competitive basis to eligible applicants. Projects could include, but are not limited to, local stream restoration projects, community rain garden or rain barrel installations, and green infrastructure projects in a K-16 environment.
