Tucson Conserve to Enhance Accepting Grant Applications


Tucson Conserve to Enhance (C2E) is accepting grant applications from local organizations seeking to improve the community with water-harvesting and habitat restoration projects.

Enhance your neighborhood wash or green spaces to reduce flooding, create habitat, and improve the health of our watershed. Awards are up to $10,000.

This year, C2E is prioritizing projects that benefit important riparian areas and urban washes, while emphasizing partnerships, long-term stewardship, and community access to green space.

We’ve simplified the application for 2017 with a two-step process. Submit your two-page “Step 1” application by May 31, 2017, for consideration. If your project is selected to proceed, you will be invited to submit a more complete “Step 2” application for evaluation. Download the application here. exiting Tucson Water website
