Stewardship Grants

The Community Watershed Stewardship Program (CWSP) is accepting pre-applications for their Stewardship Grants. 

The grants are for innovative projects that help improve Portland’s neighborhoods and communities, as well as watershed health.  Examples of funded projects include youth leadership and skills development, community gardens and green spaces, art and education, and more!

Since 1995, the CWSP has provided over $867,000 in grants to local organizations!

For the average residential sewer ratepayer, the grants represent an investment of about 24 cents a year, and every grant dollar invested leverages three dollars in volunteer time and similar contributions. 

Pre-applications are due by 4:00pm on Friday, February 6.   Selected applicants will be invited to submit full applications in the spring.
