Organizations working to improve local waterways can apply for up to $50,000 in federal matching grants. The Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program gives local governments, schools, and non-profit organizations money to improve water quality and enhance the habitat for local wildlife. Additionally, projects must engage the public, have measurable results, involve at least five partner organizations, and include a plan to sustain the project beyond the grant period.

Grant proposals for the 2018 cycle are due by January 31. Between 40 and 50 grants are expected to be awarded nationwide, each between $20,000 and $50,000.

The Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program is a partnership involving the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the Wildlife Habitat Council, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Forest Service, and a few private companies.
