Funding for Delaware River Restoration Projects Announced

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and the William Penn Foundation have jointly announced a third-year round of funding for the Delaware River Restoration Fund projects.

Twelve new or continuing water conservation and restoration grants totaling $1.77 million were unveiled at a news conference in Philadelphia yesterday.

The 12 awards generated $3 million in match from the grantees, providing a total conservation impact of $4.77 million.

As part of the broader Delaware River Watershed Initiative, the William Penn Foundation provided $7 million in grant funding for NFWF to administer competitively through its Delaware River Restoration Fund in targeted regions throughout the Delaware River watershed, from 2013 to 2016.

With a Delaware River Restoration Fund investment of $1.77 million this year, combined with $3.9 million in grants over the last two years, NFWF’s grantees are able to leverage the William Penn Foundation resources for more far-reaching, on-the-ground conservation and restoration.
