American Water state subsidiaries are accepting applications for the 2010 Environmental Grant Program. The program offers funds for innovative community-based environmental projects that improve, restore, or protect the watersheds, surface water, and/or groundwater supplies in communities served by American Water in California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.
Participating states will award grants of up to $10,000 each to support diverse types of environmental sustainability activities such as watershed cleanups, reforestation efforts, biodiversity projects, streamside buffer restoration projects, and hazardous waste collection efforts.
To qualify for Environmental Grant funding, a proposed project must be located within an American Water service area; must be completed between May 1, 2010, and November 30, 2010; and must be a new or innovative community initiative or serve as significant expansion to an existing program.
