Grants Available from the Quinnipiac River Fund; Deadline to Submit Application is January 17, 2014

The Quinnipiac River Fund, a component fund of The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, announces that grants are available for projects designed to benefit the environmental quality of the Quinnipiac River, the New Haven Harbor, and surrounding watersheds. Approximately $100,000 in grants is awarded each Spring from the Fund, which was established in 1990 as a result of a legal settlement between the National Resources Defense Council, Connecticut Fund for the Environment, and the Upjohn Corporation. The Quinnipiac River Fund serves as Connecticut’s only permanent endowment working solely to protect and preserve the Quinnipiac River and its watersheds.

The Committee will consider those grant proposals that address one or more of the following:
1. Research what pollutants are in the Quinnipiac River
2. Research methods of reducing pollution, or otherwise improving the Quinnipiac River's environmental health
3. Address means of reducing both non-point and point sources of pollution to the River
4. Research the permitting process and look at the permits themselves
5. Study the ecology of the Quinnipiac River and the New Haven Harbor
6. Provide public education about the Quinnipiac River and its watershed
7. Purchase land on the Quinnipiac River for conservation purposes, or to reduce pollution and improve public access to the River.
