About this grant

Founded in 1985, the Conservation Fund is a national organization that promotes conservation and sustainable economic development. The grantee’s Michigan office oversees the Saginaw Bay Watershed Initiative Network, which seeks to advance economic, environmental, and social sustainability in the Saginaw Bay area. With prior Mott support, the network maintained its regrants program, provided technical assistance and opportunities for public engagement, and completed strategic planning and evaluation activities. With renewed support, the grantee will continue this work, analyze septic waste policies in the Saginaw Bay region, and host community meetings to help its programs address the needs of all residents in the watershed.
