Chesapeake Bay Trust Accepting Applications for Stewardship Grants Program

The Chesapeake Bay Trust (www.cbtrust.org) is a private, nonprofit grantmaking organization created by the Maryland General Assembly to promote public awareness and participation in the restoration and protection of the Chesapeake Bay and its Maryland tributaries. The grant program was established to provide accessible funds to schools, organizations, and agencies for projects that: raise awareness about the challenges and solutions to restoring the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers; promote collaborative watershed restoration solutions between citizens, businesses, and government; engage citizens in community-based restoration and protection projects that benefit watershed health; educate students about the bay and their local watersheds; and create watershed plans that identify specific actions that citizens can take to improve water quality and habitat. The Stewardship Grants program awards grants of between $5,001 and $25,000 each for projects that address one or more of the trust’s grantmaking priorities. Organizations working in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay and Youghiogheny River watersheds may apply for funding through this program. Complete program information and application instructions are available at the trust’s Web site. Applications are due December 1, 2006.
