About this grant

American Rivers is a national water conservation organization that protects and restores the nation’s waterways, with a special focus on the Great Lakes. The grantee’s main office is in Washington, D.C., but it also has staff based in the Great Lakes region. With past Mott support, the grantee provided technical assistance to municipal staff and freshwater groups to promote sustainable stormwater infrastructure by using Clean Water Act tools. The grantee also completed a five-year strategic plan for its Great Lakes regional programs. With renewed support, the grantee will continue to provide technical assistance to Great Lakes cities seeking to improve water quality by applying the principles of integrated water management and will publish a report assessing how Great Lakes states oversee drinking water policies.
