unnamedWishing you could find some funding to help improve your favorite local stream, river or lake?  Are you located in the Kentucky River Basin?

If so, please consider applying for a Kentucky River Authority Watershed Grant. Applications are being accepted until November 16, 2015.

In 2003, the Kentucky River Authority (KRA) initiated a Watershed Grant Program to provide financial assistance to organizations within the Kentucky River Basin.  These grants encourage local interest in protecting water quality by funding watershed education, water quality sampling or water quality improvement activities.  Grants of up to $3,000 have been provided to recipients annually. Please click here for details about past grant projects.

Grants are awarded to legal non-profit organizations, such as schools, city/county agencies, environmental groups, youth organizations, etc. with an interest in:

  • Educating the public or students about local water quality status;
  • Improving water quality of local streams, rivers or lakes;
  • Encouraging appreciation and use of community water resources.

Completed grant applications are due no later than November 16, 2015. They should be submitted to Malissa McAlister at mmcalister@uky.edu. You  may also direct any questions about the grant program to this email address.
