|Clean stream grants|
Does your non-profit want to clean up a polluted stream in your community ? The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is announcing the availability of grant dollars to assist, with stream clean-up projects and planting projects during the new fiscal year. Grants, at a maximum of $1,000 each, are available for Aquatic Habitat Protection projects . The grant money could be used to buy supplies such as rakes, work gloves, and garbage bags. Also, it could be used to pay disposal fees for solid waste and tire removal or to provide promotional items like project advertisement or T shirts and refreshments for volunteer support. Grant proposals should include the applicant organization’s name, tax ID number, address, phone, and name of a contact person authorized to enter into contractual agreement on behalf of the organization. The proposal should also include the name of the stream, county or counties involved, and the project area and description.
