Healthy Water Door County announces a new granting program which invests in initiatives that research water quality issues, educate policy makers and the community, and mitigate threats to our water in Door County.
The community is invited to submit proposals to Healthy Water Door County as to how they will help us protect this precious natural resource. Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis beginning in March of 2016. Applications received by the first Tuesday of the month will typically be considered during that same month. To apply for a grant, please visit HealthyWaterDoorCounty.org.
Healthy Water Door County, a fund of the Door County Community Foundation, was created to address critical water quality issues in our area.
“Door County’s unique geography makes our water vulnerable,” says Bret Bicoy, president & CEO of the Door County Community Foundation. “As a peninsula situated on the Niagara Escarpment, our thin soil layer, combined with the vertical and horizontal fracturing common in our bedrock, makes protecting our water a priority. The mission of Healthy Water Door County is to protect our community’s human, environmental, and economic health by guarding against threats to our water.”
