CBT looking for environment initiatives to fund

Contributed by the Columbia Basin Trust

Columbia Basin residents and groups wishing to help maintain or enhance environmental conditions in and around their communities are invited to submit innovative project ideas to the Environmental Initiatives Program (EIP) of Columbia Basin Trust (CBT).

“Last year, the Environmental Initiatives Program was able to support 51 projects that are making a difference in Basin communities,” said Rick Allen, CBT Program Manager, Environment. “We hope this year’s increased budget of $690,000 will allow CBT to be even more effective in helping environmental projects across the Basin come to fruition.”

The EIP includes a small grants stream, geared at projects under $10,000 (increased from $5,000 in 2010/11) and a large grants stream for projects up to $20,000.

The EIP application form and guidelines are available at For more information, contact Tiffany Postma, CBT Administrative Assistant, Environment, at, or call 1.800.505-8998 well before the program deadline.

Application deadline for CBT’s Environmental Initiative Program grants is March 18, 2011.
