Funding Opportunities

E.g., Jan 18, 18
Funder Name: Urban Water Grant
Funding Range:

$10,000 - $125,000

The Pisces Foundation is announcing a new funding opportunity as part of the Pisces Foundation Urban Water Strategy. Pisces will award grants to motivated organizations within communities interested in and in need of assistance moving to a new smart water (One Water or Integrated Water Management) approach to water management. This approach is a system of water management that emphasizes treating all water as valuable and protecting water holistically. It integrates across water management and other disciplines, focuses on long-term sustainability, meets needs of multiple users, provides multiple benefits, supports community access and revitalization, and can be more cost effective than more narrowly focused efforts to protect water quality or water supply alone. Possible elements of a smart water strategy include rainwater harvesting, water efficiency, water reuse, green infrastructure, watershed protection, groundwater replenishment, and other nature-based solutions to water challenges. Pisces is looking to support use of these and other smart water techniques as part of a systematic approach to addressing a community’s water challenges, not as an isolated project.
