American Water Environmental Grant Program


Our commitment to protecting the environment runs deep and we’re proud to support the efforts of local organizations that share our vision.

Maryland American Water offers funding for innovative, community-based environmental projects that improve, restore or protect the watersheds, surface water and groundwater supplies in our local communities. 

We are pleased to offer assistance to community partners to help make a positive impact on the environment, and we encourage you to apply. For more information, please see our 2023 Program Brochure and Grant Application Form.

The deadline to apply is March 31, 2023.

To qualify for Environmental Grant funding, a proposed project must be:

  • Located within an American Water service area
  • Completed between May and November of the grant funding year
  • Be a new or innovative community initiative, or serve as significant expansion to an existing program.


In 2022 Maryland American Water issued a grant to the following organization:
Harford County Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America (HARCO IWLA) to restore a one-acre area of wetland forest that has sustained habitat loss due to Emerald Ash Borer infestation.
