The Chesapeake Bay Trust, in partnership with the City of Baltimore Department of Public Works, the Charles County Watershed Protection and Restoration Program, the City of Gaithersburg, and Howard County, is accepting applications for its Outreach and Restoration Grant Program.
The program encourages outreach and community engagement activities that increase the stewardship ethic of natural resources as well as on-the-ground activities that demonstrate restoration techniques and engage Maryland citizens in the restoration and protection of the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers.
Applicants can request funds through one of the following tracks: Outreach, Restoration, and Outreach and Restoration.
1) Outreach: Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of projects focused on education and awareness as project outcomes.
2) Restoration: Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of implementation projects.
3) Outreach and Restoration: Grants of up to $75,000 will be awarded to projects that combine restoration and outreach elements to measurably build knowledge within the community served.
The program is open nonprofit organizations, community associations, and faith-based organizations.
