Schuylkill River Restoration Fund Now Accepting Applications For 2020 Grant Round

The Schuylkill River Restoration Fund is now accepting applications for grants to support projects that improve water quality in the watershed.  The deadline for letters of intent is February 13.
The grants focus on three major sources of pollution: stormwater run-off, agricultural pollution and abandoned mine drainage.
Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the Schuylkill River Greenways to discuss potential projects and determine eligibility.
The Restoration is administered by the Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area.
The Schuylkill River Conservation Fund was created in 2006 through a unique public/private partnership between Exelon Nuclear, the Delaware River Basin Commission and the Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area.
Since being established in 2006, the fund has distributed more than $4 million–and leveraged another $5 million–for more than 110 projects that protect and restore the Schuylkill River.
The Schuylkill River Restoration Fund is funded through public/private partnerships and relies on donations from numerous organizations and individuals. Click Here to donate to the fund.
