The funding was provided through the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund, which awards competitive grants of up to $1 million to projects that demonstrate innovative and cost-effective approaches to dramatically reduce or eliminate pollution to the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers. This year, a total of almost $6.8 million was awarded to 21 innovative nutrient and sediment reduction projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
The Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund is administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation with funding from the U.S. EPA's Chesapeake Bay Program Office. For more information about the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund, visit www.nfwf.org/chesapeake.Download
