Community Watershed Stewardship Program provides grants of up to $10,000 to help Portlanders address challenges faced by their neighborhoods and communities, while also improving the health of our urban environment. For more information about the kinds of projects CWSP funds, see Types of Projects.
For comprehensive information about the application process including full instructions, selection criteria, and resources, see the Grant Guide.
There is a change in the application process this year for CWSP grants. Applying for a CWSP grant is now a two-stage process:
CWSP is committed to supporting applicants throughout the process, so don’t let limited grant-writing or environmental experience stop you from applying!
If you have questions about the grant program or past projects, or have an idea for a project of your own, contact the Stewardship Coordinators, Rosa Lehman or Shannon Jamison at 503-823-7917, or send a message to the CWSP team.
Improve your neighborhood, and help the environment at the same time! Get more information about Mini Grants.
