The Bay Program and its partners offer multiple grant opportunities to help fund restoration projects of all sizes across the Chesapeake watershed.
The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities (Endowment) seeks applications for the 2017 Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program. This opportunity closes February 1, 2017, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. Proposals received after this time may not be considered.
The Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program goal is to accelerate strategic protection of healthy, freshwater ecosystems and their watersheds.

This goal will be achieved by:
The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay seeks a contractor to assist in developing a methodology for establishing a baseline of performance and process for measuring progress towards the Local Leadership Outcome and, ultimately, the Stewardship Goal identified in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement. The goal of this effort is to better understand and be able to support the number of local governments that participate in Chesapeake Bay restoration activities, as well as the level of knowledge and capacity of those participating governments’ local officials.(Closing Date: 11/04/2016)
