The River Friendly Living grant program is made possible by businesses that support a healthy Verde River. The grants offer funding for projects that support Sustainable Water Supply, Clean Water, Healthy Habitat, or Connected Community.
This year, project proposals will be accepted from Homeowners, Businesses, Non-Profits/Community Organizations, or Municipalities. Participants that are working to reach River Friendly Certification will be given priority. Certification materials can be included with your application. Once proposals are received, our selection committee of participating businesses and Friends of the Verde River Staff review the projects based on impact, and available funding. All funded projects are to be completed within a 12-month period.
