Save the Lakes:   Small Grants Application
Saving our lakes requires action now as aquatic invasive species, harmful water drainage and other problems infiltrate our freshwater bodies. Without action, over time, lakes are lost for swimming, fishing and boating. STL recognizes that, to save our lakes, each lake, pond and reservoir needs active advocacy and action.    The funds to be awarded shall not  exceed $2,000 per project, & all projects must be carried out between the date of award and  August 30, 2023.  There are 2 areas of focus for these funds:

Establish a lake association focused on helping to preserve and protect a RI lake or group of lakes.  Having a lake association has proven crucial in these times of aquatic invasive species or other problems that are plaguing our freshwater bodies. United action is a powerful tool for identifying, articulating and drawing attention to the needs/problems a lake is encountering, and harnessing the energy and resources to tackle those problems.  OR

Develop a Lake Management Plan to guide the work of volunteers seeking to preserve and protect a lake or group of lakes.  To combat Aquatic Invasive Species, a sound  written plan is needed to provide the basis for directing resources to the problem. Volunteerism and fundraising or acquisition of grants are then essential toward implementing a lake's plan.

Other ideas deemed of importance will be considered, but under no circumstances will funds be allocated for equipment.
