Grants

Logo 2015Now in its 12th year, the Watershed Institute Grant Program supports the work of watershed and conservation organizations to protect their local environments and inspire a shared vision for the protection of New Jersey’s watersheds. This program is made possible by generous funding from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.

Two types of funding are available for nonprofits through this program: project grants and engagement grants. More information about both types of funding opportunities is available in this year’s grant announcement, provided below.
