Sacramento is home to beautiful rivers and creeks, and it is our responsibility to keep these valuable resources free of pollution. Do you have a project idea that can help with this mission? The Sacramento County Department of Water Resources
(DWR) is here to help you!
DWR is looking to partner with community organizations and schools by supporting projects that protect, restore or enhance local waterways within the unincorporated urban areas of Sacramento County. Eligible recipients could receive up to $2,500 for their project.
DWR has offered this grant opportunity for more than 20 years and is honored to partner with schools, non-profits and community organizations in unincorporated areas to improve and protect our communities and environment.
Past projects include trash clean-up events, creating nature-friendly landscapes, field trips to learn about Sacramento’s watershed, and developing outreach materials to educate the community about pollution prevention.
