The Urban Waters Federal Partnership (UWFP), made up of fourteen (14) federal agencies, seeks to accelerate and coordinate on-the-ground projects that are critical to improving water quality and public health, restoring forest resources and fostering community stewardship in urban watersheds. A critical component of the UWFP is the Urban Water Ambassador. The Urban Waters Ambassador coordinates with the Lead Agency or Co-Leads to work with state, local and tribal governments, non-governmental organizations and other local partners to help urban and metropolitan areas, particularly those that are underserved or economically distressed, connect with their waterways and work to improve them.
The Urban Waters Federal Partnership seeks to coordinate and facilitate on-the-ground projects in the Middle Rio Grande (Albuquerque, NM) that is critical to improving water quality and public health in urban watersheds. In order for this critical work to occur, an Urban Waters Ambassador is needed to support this effort.
The proposals should be submitted via electronic mail to Sharon Daugherty, Project Officer in the State/Tribal Programs Section, no later than 5PM September 18, 2014.
