A partnership of the U.S. Endowment and the Environmental Protection Agency
The goal of the Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program is to accelerate protection and enhancement of healthy watersheds. This doesn’t mean the watershed has to be pristine. It may contain a variety of human land uses, but it should be in relatively good condition. Degraded systems in a matrix of healthier watersheds may be appropriate.
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:
Funding key projects identified in existing watershed protection or conservation plans;
Building the sustainable organizational infrastructure, social support, and long-term funding commitments necessary to implement large-scale protection of healthy watersheds; and
Supporting innovative or catalytic projects that may accelerate or broadly advance the field of practice for watershed protection efforts.

We anticipate that the Request for Proposals will be available mid-December 2015.
