The Prince George’s County Government and the Chesapeake Bay Trust announce the seventh year of our partnership to support projects throughout Prince George’s County that aid neighborhoods while treating and controlling stormwater. The goal of this program is to improve neighborhoods, improve water quality in the County’s waterways, and engage County residents in stormwater issues.

What this funds: The Prince George’s County Stormwater Stewardship Grant Program funds on-the-ground restoration activities that improve neighborhoods, improve water quality, and engage Prince George’s County residents in the restoration and protection of the local rivers and streams of Prince George’s County.

COVID-19 considerations:  As we face the uncertainty of this health crisis together, please know that your well-being is of the utmost importance to all of us at the Chesapeake Bay Trust and Prince George’s County Department of the Environment. All projects will be asked to demonstrate the ability to safely conduct the project.

Who can apply: Non-profit organizations, municipalities, watershed organizations, education institutions, community associations, faith-based organizations, civic groups, and more.
