The Community Watershed Stewardship Program (CWSP) helps Portlanders make improvements in their neighborhoods and communities, while also improving the health of our watersheds. CWSP is a partnership between Environmental Services and Portland State University.
CWSP administers two grant programs: Stewardship Grants of up to $10,000 and Native Plant Mini-Grants of up to $500.
Examples of CWSP Projects
Mini-Grants are available to both community groups and some private landowners throughout the year to purchase native plants.
CWSP awards grants in a manner that advances the city’s equity goals, with regard to where projects are carried out and who they involve and benefit. We encourage projects that expand and diversify leadership and participation in watershed stewardship.
If you have questions about the grant program, past projects, or have an idea for a project of your own, contact Stewardship Coordinator Esmerelda Sanchez at 503-823-7917.
