Clean water grants

Valley Water is accepting applicatio­ns for its 2023 Safe, Clean Water Grants Program, which provides funding for projects that support the mission of providing safe, clean water for a healthy life, environmen­t and economy.

The Grants & Partnershi­ps Program is part of the Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program, a parcel tax Santa Clara County voters overwhelmi­ngly renewed in November 2020. For

2023, Valley Water has a total of $1.4 million with no minimum or maximum amount per project that fits into the following categories: water conservati­on, pollution prevention, volunteer cleanup efforts and education, wildlife habitat restoratio­n and access to trails and open space.

Applicatio­ns are due by March 10. Valley Water highly encourages applicatio­ns from those working on projects that promote equity and allow resources to reach historical­ly underserve­d areas. Firsttime applicants and applicants that demonstrat­e financial stability are encouraged to apply.

Valley Water will host a virtual workshop March 1, 10-11:30 a.m., where applicants can learn more about the available grants and their requiremen­ts. For more informatio­n, visit valleywate­ grants.
