Application and Reporting

Updated April 28, 2020: Due to budget constraints faced by the City as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, both the Make a Splash Grant and Sustainability Small Grant programs have been suspended for the remainder of the year. No applications for either program will be reviewed or awarded in 2020.

The City of Tacoma is grateful for our community’s continued commitment to restore, protect, and preserve our environment and surface water resources. With that in mind, we ask those who submitted (or were planning to submit) applications in 2020 to please hold on to your project ideas, as we hope to resume both programs in 2021.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit any of the following City of Tacoma resources to learn about ways you can prevent stormwater pollution, help protect Puget Sound, and care for our shared environment – all while staying home, and staying healthy:
