TWRA 2020-21 Clean Stream Grants To Assist With Habitat Protection Program Applications Due Today

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency announced the availability of grant dollars to assist cities, schools, community organizations, civic groups, watershed organizations, and conservation groups, etc., with stream clean-up projects and planting projects during the 2020-21 fiscal year.

Five grants, at a maximum of $1,000 each, are available for each of TWRA's four regional Aquatic Habitat Protection projects (a total of $5,000 per region). The funds will be obligated as grants, so the grantee must have a nonprofit tax number. The application deadline for the program is today. The projects are to be completed, the money spent, and a report submitted by June 30, 2021.

The grant money could be used to buy supplies such as rakes, work gloves, and garbage bags. Also, it could be used to pay disposal fees for solid waste and tire removal or to provide promotional items like project advertisement or t-shirts and refreshments for volunteer support.

Grant proposals should include the applicant organization's name, tax ID number, address, phone, and name of a contact person authorized to enter into contractual agreement on behalf of the organization. The proposal should also include the name of the stream, county or counties involved, and the project area and description.
