Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment is pleased to announce the opportunity to apply to the Spring 2017 Puget Sound Stewardship & Mitigation Fund

The Puget Sound Stewardship and Mitigation Fund was created by a record legal settlement between the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance (Soundkeeper) and Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway, and has since been supplemented by several other pollution mitigation payments including Trident Seafoods, Total Terminals, SSA Terminals and Louis Dreyfus Company Washington LLC. The Fund's goal is to mitigate past pollution runoff by supporting community-based efforts to protect or improve the water quality of Puget Sound. Since inception in 2012 around $2.5 million in grants have been awarded.

In 2017, the Fund will accept proposals from groups of any size. Click here to check the full eligibility requirements and to see examples of eligible projects. To apply, groups must complete the application process using the online grant application portal at
