It supports a range of projects within the Chesapeake-Appalachia watershed and in Louisiana. From New Orleans to the Gulf Coast, the fund supports work to restore the natural balance of environment and development. Education efforts are a priority. The fund recently supported a school environmental education program in Virginia about upgrading the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

To apply, go online and fill out a brief eligibility quiz. If it is determined that your project meets our general requirements, you will immediately be given the opportunity to submit a letter of inquiry. Following review by staff, a full proposal may then be requested.
