Submitted by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources:
The DNR is opening another round of Watershed Planning Grants, which help local Iowa groups find solutions for improving Iowa’s state’s lakes, streams and rivers. Groups can get started by calling for a consultation to discuss their ideas and have their questions about the grant application process and watershed improvement answered. Applications are due April 2.
Planning grants offer $10,000 to $50,000 to develop Watershed Management Plans that address problems and create solutions for waters on the state’s impaired waters list. Local or regional groups, organizations or agencies (public or private) are eligible to apply. More information is available on the DNR website at: http://watershed.iowadnr.gov/WatershedPlanning/WatershedPlanningGrants.aspx.
