The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has announced that are accepting applications for technical assistance grants through February 24, 2014 under the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund. The NFWF Technical Assistance Program is designed to provide contractual support for the kind of activities implementation grants don’t cover: design work, planning, and prioritization, among other similar objectives. All projects should have an ultimate goal of addressing at least one of the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund Objectives such as reducing nutrient and sediment runoff from residential and commercial properties and improving urban stormwater management through the storage, treatment and infiltration of stormwater runoff through practices such as bioretention and rain water harvesting.  Technical assistance grants are competitive based and are awarded up to $40,000.
