Community Watershed Stewardship grants

Do you have a "green" idea for your neighborhood? The Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) is accepting grant applications through the Community Watershed Stewardship Program

The program gives Portlanders an opportunity to enhance their neighborhoods and communities, while improving the health of our watersheds.  Grants are up to $10,000!

The program is a partnership between BES and Portland State University.  Since it began in 1995, it has granted more than $1 million for watershed projects!

Across the city, people are getting involved in their neighborhoods, and making a lasting difference in their communities.   And you can too!  Need help developing project ideas or filling out your application?  Join BES staff at one of these three grant workshops:
