How We Fund

The Foundation is working to create the long-term conditions – the practices, policies, and public engagement — that will ensure the Delaware River Watershed supports aquatic life and recreation in and on the water. We underwrite efforts to secure concentrated forest protection, agricultural restoration, and stormwater solutions that maintain and improve stream health in targeted sub-watersheds; robust and sustained regulatory protections and funding; and equitable and widespread public access to and engagement with our rivers and streams. Prospective grantees are welcome to submit proposals to more than one strategy. Learn more about Watershed Protection’s grant making process, eligibility requirements and grant making timeline.
