About this grant

River Network is a national environmental organization that seeks to strengthen the organizational capacity of freshwater groups in the Great Lakes and Southeast. To better connect with the other intermediary organizations working to build the institutional strength of small- and mid-sized environmental groups, the grantee helped create the Environmental Capacity Builders Network. This grant increase will help the grantee convene the group’s 2011 annual gathering to be held in Flint, Michigan. The meeting will provide opportunities for members to network, improve technical knowledge and skills, share lessons learned, and identify opportunities for collaboration.
