Wells Fargo and the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation are offering financial assistance through their Environmental Solutions for Communities initiative, a grant program designed to help communities in the United States create a more sustainable future through responsible environmental stewardship. Priority will be given to projects that successfully address one or more of the following: cost-effective stewardship efforts to enhance water quality and quantity and/or improve wildlife habitat for species of concern while maintaining or increasing agricultural productivity; community-based conservation of local habitats and natural areas; efforts to enhance water quality, promote urban forestry, educate and train community leaders on sustainable practices, promote related job creation and training, and/or engage diverse partners and volunteers; cost-effective and environmentally friendly approaches to improve environmental conditions within urban communities by “greening” traditional infrastructure and public projects such as storm water management and flood control, public parks, and public facilities; and the economic and biological resiliency of the nation’s coastal communities and ecosystems (including the Great Lakes). Grants will typically range from $25,000 to $100,000 for projects of up to eighteen months in duration.
