New Jersey American Water Announces Grant Program

New Jersey American Water announced the launch of the American Water Charitable Foundation 2024 Water and Environment Grant Program. To streamline the grant experience for its community partners, the Foundation has combined American Water’s former Environmental Grant Program with its Water and Environment Grant Program.

“We are proud of our former Environmental Grant Program, which provided over $470,000 in funding to 56 environmental projects in communities served by New Jersey American Water since 2009. By combining this program with the American Water Charitable Foundation’s Water and the Environment Grant, we will be able to provide an even greater impact on environmental programs throughout the state,” said Mark McDonough, President of New Jersey American Water and board member of the American Water Charitable Foundation.

The Foundation invites community partners to apply for grants that promote clean water, conservation, environmental education, climate variability and water-based recreation projects. Applications will be accepted before March 15, 2024, from organizations in New Jersey American Water’s service areas.

“The American Water Charitable Foundation is proud to work collaboratively with New Jersey American Water and launch the Water and Environment Grant Program, supporting impactful initiatives and programs across the nation,” said Carrie Williams, President of the American Water Charitable Foundation. “Our charitable focus to Keep Communities Flowing empowers communities to learn how every drop counts while engaging local organizations on the importance of protecting this vital resource.”

The Foundation supports three pillars of giving – Water, People and Communities. Since 2012, the American Water Charitable Foundation has invested $15.5 million in funding through grants and matching gifts that positively benefit the communities where American Water and its employees live and work.
