Is Stream Partners a Fit for Your Organization?

The West Virginia Stream Partners program's purpose is to develop sustainable watershed associations with the capacity to restore, enhance and protect WV streams and rivers for future generations by providing financial assistance to diverse local partnerships focused on improving water quality, watersheds and the species and habitats they support.


Projects include a variety of ecological improvements along with targeted community outreach, education, and stewardship. Ecological improvements may include one or more of the following: stream, wetland, riparian, forest, and habitat restoration; wildlife conservation, community tree canopy enhancement, water quality monitoring, recreational development, and green infrastructure best management practices for managing stormwater run-off.

Projects should increase access to the benefits of nature, reduce the impact of environmental threats and engage local communities in project planning, outreach, and implementation. This program expects that applicants will represent the community with a mixture of residents, local businesses, government, and non-profit partnerships. Projects must be complete within the grant year and receive technical support/assistance from the partner agencies.
