- Being cost effective;
- Basing the project on sound science principles;
- Promoting involvement of students or citizens; and,
- Promoting enhancement of a water resource or associated habitat.

What is the deadline for applying for the E2 Grant?
The deadline for 2017/2018 grant applications is October 15, 2017. FAWQC will meet after the deadline to review grant applications and select grant recipients so that funds can be distributed to the winners either before the holidays or right after the new year.
How do I apply for the Grant?
Fill out an online E2 Application. Your project proposal should address each of the above five requirements listed above.
Communication of funded project details during the FAWQC annual water issues conference is the primary mechanism for continued external financial support of the FAWQC E2 Fund. If awarded an E2 Fund Grant, the recipient agrees that grant monies will only be used for the purchase of goods and/or services necessary for implementation and completion of the approved E2 Project and that, if requested by FAWQC, the recipient will provide documentation (e.g., receipts, work orders) demonstrating that grant monies were used in that manner. If awarded an E2 Fund Grant, the recipient also understands that a written report, poster, or video presentation regarding the approved E2 Project may be required prior to June 1.
If you have any questions or concerns about the application process or requirements, please contact Mr. David O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org.
