About this grant

The Water Foundation, a grantmaker supporting water policy reform nationwide, seeks to build long-term solutions that increase access to clean and affordable drinking water. With prior support from the Mott Foundation, the grantee has accomplished this by strengthening connections between community-based groups, traditional environmental organizations and decision-makers nationwide. With continued support, the grantee will support such organizations in the Great Lakes region to track and influence federal and state-level infrastructure spending and connect Great Lakes groups and leaders to similar initiatives at the national level.
