Grant Opportunity

Watershed Quality Contest Overview:

In order to promote the implementation of local watershed quality stewardship projects, a portion of the proceeds generated from the Urban Runoff 5K (UR5K) will be awarded back to the community through one watershed quality award of $1000.00. Local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) will have the opportunity to submit specific stewardship proposals that will be judged by the UR5K Planning Committee.   The committee is seeking projects focused on Pollutant Runoff Reduction Implementation. Contest entries include any proposed project that involves the implementation/installation Best Management Practices (BMPs) that will improve runoff within a specific watershed.  Examples BMPs could include, but not be limited to, rain gardens or other bio-retention basins, tree plantings, downspout disconnection, rain barrels, etc.    

Eligibility: The UR5K Prize can be awarded to any Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that submits an application with a signed Implementation Certification Statement that attest the award money will be utilized to implement the project as submitted in the contest entry form. NGOs can submit proposals for both Watershed Quality Award categories. NGOs are not required to be tax-exempt organizations for eligibility in this contest.
