Are you a member of a community group looking to improve your neighborhood and help the environment? Are you interested in applying for a Community Watershed Stewardship Program grant, but don’t have any grant writing experience? Would you like help filling out your application materials, but don’t know where to turn?
You’re in luck! CWSP has two upcoming grant writing workshops that are fun, free and open to the public. Topics will include the grant selection process, criteria used for scoring applications and tips for giving your grant proposal its best chance at success. Successful grant proposals will promote equity and build community partnerships, and we can help you develop your ideas so they are reviewed competitively. Bring your friends, your ideas and your love for Portland watersheds. Refreshments provided. We hope to see you there!
The dates, times and locations for the two upcoming November workshops are:
- Saturday, November 11th: 2:30-3:30pm in the US Bank Room at the Central Library (801 SW 10th Ave, Portland)
- Sunday, November 19th: 2:30-4:00pm, Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (4815 NE 7th Ave, Portland)
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. Learn more at: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/Bes/43077.
