Do you have an idea for a Community Watershed Stewardship Program (CWSP) grant project? Have you started the application paperwork, but don’t know what to write? Our friendly and helpful Student Coordinator is here to help you, and will be holding community workshops where you can get answers to your questions and information about how to make your grant as competitive as possible.
CWSP in action: volunteers from Depave remove pavement at St Mary's Ethiopian Orthodox Church to build a rain garden. Learn more here: http://depave.org/saint-mary/
The deadline for submitting applications to the Community Watershed Stewardship (CWSP) grants is approaching fast. Pre-applications submitted by February 2nd will be reviewed and may be eligible for up to $10,000 to help Portlanders make improvements in their neighborhoods and communities, while also improving the health of our watersheds. You can learn all about CWSP here.
CWSP has two upcoming grant 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, family, creativity, ideas and your love for our watersheds; we will provide everything else! Refreshments will be provided, free of charge.
The dates, times and locations for the two upcoming January workshops are:
- Sunday, January 7th from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Woodstock Library, located at 6008 SE 49th Ave, Portland OR 97206
- Saturday, January 20th from 12:45 to 1:45 pm at the Holgate Library, located at 7905 SE Holgate Blvd, Portland, OR 97206
