About this grant

River Network is a national technical assistance provider that seeks to build a strong, connected network of citizens and groups working to protect and restore waterways in the United States. With prior Mott support, the grantee delivered a variety of technical assistance services and small grants to strengthen the capacity of freshwater groups working in the Great Lakes. With this renewal, the grantee will continue to provide a combination of individualized consultation, group training, regrants, and other forms of technical assistance to support watershed groups in the Great Lakes Basin. The grantee will also conduct regional research and analyses to understand the organizational needs of its members and partners.
