The Prince George’s County Government and the Chesapeake Bay Trust announce the fourth year of our partnership for the Prince George’s Stormwater Stewardship Grant Program. This grant program supports projects that provide community engagement while treating and controlling stormwater. The goal of this program is to improve communities, improve water quality in the County’s waterways, and engage County residents in stormwater issues. Proposals that meet or exceed the “Jobs First Act” CB-17-2011 are preferred.

In addition, Technical Assistance applications for specific work orders are available as follows: Alternative Compliance Program (track 3), to plant trees (track 4), to provide environmental education (track 5), and to reduce trash in the Anacostia (track 6).
