The Okanagan Basin Water Board is now accepting applications to its 2013 Water Conservation and Quality Improvement (WCQI) Grant Program.
The program, in its eighth year, has $300,000 available for projects that conserve water or improve its quality. Eligible recipients include non-profit community groups, local governments (regional districts or municipalities), and irrigation or improvement districts. Successful applicants can receive up to $30,000 for their project. Among the program’s priorities are projects that benefit the entire Okanagan and show collaboration.
