Tampa Bay Water is once again offering $20,000 in mini-grants to help fund projects and events sponsored by local community groups, non-profit groups, schools and universities that help promote protection of the region’s drinking water sources.

Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Oct. 31, 2013. Applications are available on Tampa Bay Water's website or by contacting Ivana Blankenship at 727-796-2355 or 813-996-7009.

Past recipients have used the mini-grants to improve stormwater runoff, reduce litter going into water ways and educate students on the importance of protecting drinking water. Recipients have included Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, St. Cecelia Interparochial School, Lake Highlander Resident Owned Association, Tampa Bay Living Green Expo and Tampa Bay Beautification Environmental.

All mini-grant applications received will be reviewed and screened against the program’s selection criteria. Winners will be notified before the end of 2013 and funds will be granted in 2014.
