Pennsylvania American Water 2014 Environmental Grant Program

Pennsylvania American Water is accepting applications for its 2014 Environmental Grant Program.

Grants are available to environmental, community and watershed organizations that are planning projects within the company’s service area, which covers nearly 400 communities across 36 counties. Applications will be evaluated on environmental need, innovation, community engagement and sustainability.

Pennsylvania American Water is a subsidiary of American Water, which initiated the program in 2009 to support projects that protect and/or restore drinking water sources and surrounding watersheds.

Proposed projects must:

  • Address a source water or watershed protection need in the community
  • Be completed between May 1 and Nov. 30 of this year
  • Offer a new or innovative program for the community, or serve as a significant expansion to an existing program
  • Be carried out by formal or informal partnerships between two or more organizations
  • Provide evidence of sustainability (continued existence after the Pennsylvania American Water grant money is utilized)
  • Be located within one of Pennsylvania American Water’s service areas

The deadline to apply is March 31.
