Urban Waters Partnership

The Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program - 2017

The Urban Waters Federal Partnership is proud to sponsor the Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program. The program seeks to develop community capacity by providing modest assistance to diverse local partnerships for river, wetlands, riparian, forest and coastal restoration, and wildlife conservation.  Water monitoring, stormwater management, source water protection, urban tree canopy restoration and projects designed to prevent trash from entering waterways are just some of the types of projects the Partnership supports. The Partnership gives priority to projects that improve and protect urban waterways in overburdened or economically distressed communities.  More information about the 2017 Request for Proposals can be found on the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation's website.
