Second Round of Grants for Delaware River

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced $2.1 million in grant awards from the Delaware River Restoration Fund, the second round of grants made from the fund to improve waters that contribute to the overall health of the Delaware River.

The grants announced today are part of a five-year, $35 million multistate investment by the William Penn Foundation.

The 2015 slate of Delaware River Restoration Fund grants represents a strong commitment to restoring water quality and habitats in this iconic watershed,” said Jeff Trandahl, executive director and CEO at NFWF.

With an investment of $2.1 million this year, NFWF’s grantees are able to leverage nearly twice that amount for on-the-ground conservation and restoration. NFWF is thrilled to further advance the great work made possible by the William Penn Foundation investment and this impressive group of partners.”

This year, 15 projects have been selected to receive funding that will improve the water quality and habitats of the Delaware River watershed. The projects announced today are expected to restore 49 acres of wetlands and 18 miles of riparian habitats.
