The Chesapeake Bay Small Watershed Grants Program promotes community-based efforts to develop and implement conservation strategies to protect and restore the diverse natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed. The program provides grants to local governments and community organizations working to improve the condition of their local watersheds while building citizen-based resource stewardship. The program has been designed to encourage the sharing of innovating ideas among the many organizations wishing to be involved in watershed protection activities.
In 2012, the Small Watershed Grants Program awarded $2.4 million to 20 nonprofit organizations and local governments working to improve the condition of their local watersheds.Download
