The MWCC Watershed Fund provides competitive funding to assist our community-based watershed partners with implementing on-the-ground projects to benefit water quality, water quantity, natural resources, conservation stewardship, community health, and local livelihoods. Up to $30,000 may be awarded to each recipient, depending on the funding source. Project support opportunities vary, with different requirements for match, reporting, and reimbursement.
