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.
