TWRA announces availability of grants for 2009-10 stream clean-up projects

NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) announces the availability of grant dollars to assist cities, schools, community organizations, civic groups, watershed organizations, and conservation groups, etc., with stream clean-up projects for the fiscal year 2009-10.

The grant money could be used to buy supplies, such as rakes, work gloves, and garbage bags. In addition, the funds could be used to pay disposal fees for solid waste and tire removal or to provide promotional items such as project advertisement or T‑shirts and refreshments for volunteer support.    Five grants, at $1,000 each, are available for each of TWRA's four regional Aquatic Habitat Protection projects (a total of $5,000 per region). The funds will be obligated as grants, so the grantee must have a nonprofit tax number. The projects are to be completed, the money spent, and a report submitted by June 30, 2010. In order to meet this deadline, TWRA would need to receive the proposals as soon as possible.    Grant proposals should include the applicant organization's name, tax ID number, address, phone, and name of a contact person authorized to enter into contractual agreement on behalf of the organization. The proposal should also include the name of the stream, county or counties involved, and the project area and description.
