American Water Accepting Applications for Environmental Grant Program
Deadline: March 25, 2011

American Water Works Company, a U.S. water and wastewater utility company, has announced that applications are being accepted for its 2011 Environmental Grant Program. Grants are available in American Water service areas in ten states: California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.

Established in 2005, American Water’s Environmental Grant Program offers funds for innovative, community-based environmental projects that improve, restore, or protect watersheds, surface water, and/or groundwater supplies through partnerships.

To qualify, proposed projects must address a source water or watershed protection need in the community; be a new or innovative program for the community, or serve as a significant expansion to an existing program; be carried out by a formal or informal partnership between two or more organizations; and provide evidence of sustainability (continued existence after the American Water grant monies are utilized).

In 2010, the program awarded a total of more than $128,000 in grants to thirty-two projects throughout American Water’s service areas in eight states.

Complete program information and application requirements are available at the American Water Web site.
