Call for Applications – Water Conservation & Quality Improvement Grant Program

The Okanagan Basin Water Board is now accepting applications to its 2014 Water Conservation and Quality Improvement (WCQI) Grant Program.

The program, in its ninth year, has $300,000 available for projects that conserve water or improve its quality. Successful applicants can receive up to a maximum of $30,000 for their project.

The purpose of the program is to assist local organizations in addressing water issues and to enhance the valley-wide sustainable use of water.

Eligible applicants can be Okanagan municipalities, regional districts, irrigation/improvement districts (must be water suppliers and recognized under the Local Government Act and Community Charter), and non-profit community organizations. Ineligible applicants include senior government agencies, consulting firms, businesses and any research/development projects that are associated with for-profit business activities.
