2014 Clean Stormwater Grant
The purpose of the grant program is to increase public involvement on environmental education and improvement projects to promote stormwater quality. Grants will be awarded in December 2013.
The grant program creates and maintains District partnerships with local residents and community groups by funding, in whole or in part, projects that preserve, protect, or educate citizens about our water resources – local stormwater ponding basins, canals, creeks, the San Joaquin River and groundwater.
Volunteer groups, environmental organizations, schools, neighborhood improvement groups and other not-for-profit associations are encouraged to apply. Projects must take place within the District’s service area, which is generally described as the Fresno-Clovis metropolitan area.

The Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District is offering grants to 5th grade classes for field trips to Scout Island at the San Joaquin River or Lost Lake. The field trip will be focused on learning about our local water resources and the importance of keeping them clean.
The grant will fund transportation and the facility docent fees for all 5th grade students at your school. You will be provided with activity books, pencils, local water cycle poster and a Storm Drains 101 DVD. Patrick Bryan, a District employee, will also do a presentation about local water resources and conservation before your trip.
Scout Island are open for school field trips in April, May, June, September and October. Spaces fill up quickly so plan a date for your field trip as soon as possible.
