The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) recently announced the availability of grant dollars to assist cities, schools, community organizations, civic groups, watershed organizations, and conservation groups, etc., with stream clean-up projects and planting projects.
Five grants, at $1,000 each, are available for each of TWRA’s four regional Aquatic Habitat Protection projects (a total of $5,000 per region). The funds will be obligated as grants, so the grantee must have a nonprofit tax number. The projects are to be completed, the money spent, and a report submitted by June 30, 2013. In order to meet this deadline, TWRA will accept proposals through June 15, 2012.
Contact David McKinney at (615) 781-6577 or by email at Dave.McKinney@tn.gov with any questions. For additional information, interested persons may contact TWRA regional offices.
