About this grant

Since its inception in 1996, with significant support from the Mott Foundation, Freshwater Future has provided over $4 million through 1,200 grants for capacity building and technical support to groups working to protect and restore the waters of the region. With this project, the grantee will provide education, technical support, training, and tools to Mott grantees to more effectively utilize communications to advance organizational objectives. The grantee will regularly reach out to other Mott grantees to anticipate communications needs and help them plan and execute communications tactics and activities. Freshwater Future will expand its capacity by gaining communications expertise through this project and from the skills of a consulting team.
