About this grant

Since 1998, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has worked to strengthen freshwater conservation efforts in the Southeast. To enhance the effectiveness and long-term sustainability of groups dedicated to preserving and enhancing vital rivers and streams, WWF initiated the Southeast Rivers and Streams Support Fund.Multiyear funding will enable WWF to provide small grants to local organizations to fund efforts such as monitoring implementation of water quality policies, building the capacity of broad-based watershed organizations, offering incentives for private land conservation, and encouraging habitat restoration and species reintroduction.During the past three years, WWF awarded grants to 53 projects totaling $223,000 in support of public education and awareness efforts, research, collaboration, training, technology, and watershed planning.
