Rutgers University Waters Restoration Grant Program

Rutgers University in cooperation with the Stewards program on campus is establishing a Waters Restoration Grant Program.  The current project seeks to address water quality issues in priority watersheds, such as erosion due to unstable streambanks, pollution from stormwater runoff, and degraded shorelines caused by development. The program focuses on the stewardship and restoration of coastal, wetland ecosystems across the country. Its goal is to meet the conservation needs of important species and habitats, providing measurable and meaningful conservation and educational outcomes. The program requires the establishment and enhancement of diverse partnerships and an education/outreach component that will help shape and sustain behavior to achieve conservation goals.

Funding priorities for this program include on-the-ground wetland, and in-stream and/or coastal habitat restoration; meaningful education and training activities, either through community outreach, participation and/or integration with K-12 environmental curriculum and measurable ecological, educational and community benefits. A total of $2.45 million will be provided to nonprofit organizations, local governments, tribes and educational institutions for wetlands restoration, stormwater projects, habitat protection and other initiatives to build community capacity to protect water quality and natural resources. The grants, in the amount of $20- to $50,000 each, are funded by a coalition of public and private organizations.
