New Projects to Improve Chicago Waterways

Chi-Cal Rivers Fund partners yesterday announced five projects selected to receive $1.1 million in grant funding that will help improve and enhance waterways in the Chicago and Calumet region.

Administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), the Fund is a partnership among ArcelorMittal, The Chicago Community Trust, Crown Family Philanthropies, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the Joyce Foundation, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, and the Wrigley Company Foundation.

The projects being funded by the Chi-Cal Rivers Fund are making lasting contributions to the water environment, and the MWRD is a proud partner in this effort,” said MWRD President Kathleen Meany.

The partnership began in 2013, and the $1.1 million announced yesterday marks the Fund’s second annual set of grants.

These projects will help revitalize local waterways and benefit communities throughout the region,” said Jeff Trandahl, executive director and CEO of NFWF. “Thanks to the collaboration and support of our program partners, this work will result in cleaner water, healthier fish and wildlife populations, and better outdoor opportunities for the people who live here.”
