Water company offering grants for conservation programs

Indiana American Water is announcing the launch of the American Water Charitable Foundation’s Water and Environment Grant Program.

The Foundation is inviting community partners to apply for grants that promote clean water, conservation, environmental education, climate variability and water-based recreation projects. Applications are being accepted from organizations served by Indiana American Water.

Foundation officials say that the new program will streamline applications as it combines two previous programs and strengthen the company’s charitable focus. Since 2012, the American Water Charitable Foundation has invested $15.5 million in funding through grants and matching gifts.
