ASN Watershed Stewardship Grant Program - Spring 2007

Background

The Alberta Stewardship Network (ASN) is now inviting Watershed Stewardship Groups working in Alberta to submit Applications for grants up to a maximum of $7,500 for the Spring 2007 grant cycle.

Under Water for Life: Alberta's Strategy for Sustainability, the Government of Alberta (GOA) and its partners recognize the tremendous grassroots effort found in communities across the province to care for our watersheds and water resources. To support this effort, the GOA has provided further funds to the Alberta Stewardship Network (ASN) to, in turn, provide support for Watershed Stewardship Groups.1

The project must have clear and measurable outcomes that contribute to:

  1. increased awareness and knowledge of local watershed2 issues; and/or
  2. improved conditions of local watersheds.2

Applicants will also be asked to describe how the project or initiative contributes on a local scale to the goals of the Water for Life strategy.

Deadlines

If you would like your application reviewed, submit it before the Early Submission Deadline: 4:30pm, Friday, January 26, 2007. Final Submission Deadline: Friday, February 9, 2007 by 4:30pm

Definitions

1 "Watershed Stewardship Group" is a broad term used in the Water for Life strategy to encompass diverse types of community partnerships that are often volunteer-based and are actively engaged in environmental stewardship of their local watershed. Such groups are inclusive (they may include individuals, organizations, agriculture, industry, municipalities and other forms of local government) who work together to set common goals and achieve shared outcomes.

2 A "watershed" is an area of land, bounded by topographic features, that drains water to a shared destination such as a lake, river or ocean.
