2016 Clean Stormwater Grants
The District offers grants to fund projects that increase public involvement in environmental education activities to promote stormwater quality. Grant applications for 2016 are available, and will be due on November 13, 2015. Download application.
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. Read grant instructions and project ideas here.
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.
2016 San Joaquin River 5th Grade Class Field Trip Grants
The Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District is offering grants to 5th grade classes for field trips to Scout Island at the San Joaquin River. 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. The District will also provide a classroom presentation about local water resources and conservation before your trip.
Scout Island is open for school field trips in April, May, June, September and October.
We’ll also take applications for other elementary school grade levels. Just note the grade level on the application. Fifth grade classrooms will be given priority. Grant applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. on November 13, 2015.
