Grant applications sought for improving streams

By Staff | Jan 21, 2011

The West Virginia Stream Partners Program is accepting grant applications from community groups interested in improving local stream health.

More than $70,000 is available this year through West Virginia’s Stream Partners Program. Community-based watershed associations wishing to implement a watershed improvement project may apply for up to $5,000. The deadline to apply for grants is April 15.

Volunteers have used funding in the past for everything from creating fish habitat by planting trees along stream banks, to developing trout in classroom programs at local schools.
