Make a splash in Tacoma with the City's environmental grant program!
City of Tacoma Environmental Services awards up to $50,000 a year in environmental grants to help educate residents and protect and restore our surface water resources. Grants may be up to $4,000 and are open to anyone considering a project within Tacoma city limits.
Projects may be educational and should focus on preventing stormwater pollution and protecting or restoring clean surface water. This grant is not meant for projects focusing on water conservation or clean drinking water.
Check out the projects supported by 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2003 Make a Splash grants.
The 2013 Make a Splash grant application period begins April 1, 2013. The application deadline is May 20, 2013. Only applications submitted beginning April 1 and postmarked by May 20 will be considered.
NOTE: Tie-ins with the Puget Sound regional stormwater pollution prevention campaign, Puget Sound Starts Here (www.PugetSoundStartsHere.org), are encouraged. Key messages in that campaign include proper pet waste disposal, natural yard care, preferred car washing methods and fixing leaky vehicles.
