The Montgomery County Watershed Restoration and Outreach Grant program, offered by the Montgomery County Government and the Chesapeake Bay Trust, is now accepting proposals to support watershed restoration and outreach throughout Montgomery County. The Montgomery County Watershed Restoration and Outreach Grant Program funds public outreach and stewardship projects, community-based restoration water quality implementation projects, and litter reduction projects in the Anacostia River Watershed using trash traps. Projects should educate and engage residents in watershed improvement while achieving measurable impacts and sustainable behavior change. Creative and innovative proposals are encouraged. Together, these efforts will restore and protect the local rivers and streams of Montgomery County.

This funding opportunity is available for projects throughout Montgomery County for grant awards of up to $50,000 for public outreach and stewardship projects; up to $100,000 for community-based restoration projects; and up to $250,000 for litter reduction projects using trash traps. Please note that the municipalities of Gaithersburg, Rockville, and Takoma Park are not eligible for funding in this program; however they are eligible in the Outreach and Restoration Grant Program . The Trust welcomes applicants from 501©3 non-profit organizations such as community associations, faith-based organizations, youth, and civic groups, watershed organizations, and others.
