WREN Watershed Education & SWP Education Grant Programs Accepting Proposals Now

The Water Resources Education Network (WREN), a project of the Citizen Education Fund of the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania (LWVPA-CEF), has released its 2011-2012 grant packages and is now accepting applications. Since 1992, LWVPA-CEF has provided over $1.8 million in funding to over 277 community partnerships working to safeguard Pennsylvania water resources, and is looking for collaborative proposals under WREN’s Watershed Education and Source Water Protection Education Programs.

The Watershed Education Grant Program seeks to raise public awareness, encourage behavior change and improve public policies to protect water resources. WREN encourages grant applications for Watershed Protection education projects that will build awareness and educate Pennsylvania citizens and local officials about their role as environmental stewards to protect, improve, or remediate the watershed from the impacts of polluted runoff.

The Source Water Protection Program seeks to raise awareness and encourage Pennsylvania public water suppliers and communities to voluntarily implement source water protection in a practical, sustainable way through preventative and risk reduction activities, and appropriate land management strategies. The goal of the WREN Source Water Protection (SWP) Education Grant Program is to support development of local partnerships that will conduct community education to build an informed citizenry who adopt water-friendly environmental behaviors and will encourage local officials to take action and make decisions that protect drinking water resources and public health.
