Saginaw Bay WIN announces funding availability
The Sustainable Communities Initiative Fund of the Saginaw Bay Watershed Initiative Network (WIN) has announced that it is seeking pre-proposals for its Fall 2002 funding round.
Projects that support sustainable solutions to environmental, community, and economic challenges may qualify for funding. Projects that cross governmental boundaries, encourage partnerships by leveraging resources, and balance a long-term focus with short-term, "on the ground" results are given priority. WIN's funding priorities for 2002 are in the areas of wildlife habitat, water resources, land use, agriculture/pollution prevention, communication/eco-marketing/education, and sustainable business strategies. Projects must be completed within the 22 county boundary of the Saginaw Bay Watershed.
WIN welcomes pre-proposals from nonprofit organizations that advance the search for sustainable solutions to current watershed challenges. We are responsive to new ideas, new research and new approaches, recognizing that such innovation is necessary to move the concepts of sustainability forward in the Saginaw Bay Watershed,
