The North Coast Small Grant Team has announced the fourth round of the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board's (OWEB) small grant program for watershed restoration projects.
OWEB has allocated funds to the North Coast region for small-scale, on-the-ground watershed restoration projects, which need to be spent by June 2005. The maximum grant award is $10,000.
The grant team encourages private landowners and local public agencies to look into this program to determine their eligibility to receive funding for projects that improve watershed health and salmonid habitat.
The organization is comprised of watershed councils and soil and water conservation districts stretching from Astoria to Neskowin. It receives applications and makes grant awards as part of OWEB's statewide small grant program.
Applications will be accepted until Nov. 30. The applications and instructions can be downloaded at OWEB's Web site at (http://www.oweb.state.or.us), or call the North Coast Small Grant Team at 503-842-2240, ext. 114, for information about the program.
