Pennsylvania American Water is now accepting applications for its 2014 Environmental Grant Program, according to Senator Elder Vogel.
Grant awards are available to environmental, community and watershed organizations that are planning projects within the company’s service area, which covers nearly 400 communities across 36 counties, including parts of Beaver and Lawrence counties.
Applications will be evaluated on such criteria as environmental need, innovation, community engagement and sustainability. Projects must address a source water or watershed protection need in the community and be completed between May 1 and November 30, 2014.
More information and applications can be obtained directly from the Pennsylvania American Water website at www.pennsylvaniaamwater.com, under the Water Quality & Stewardship tab. Applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2014.
