Puget Sound Stewardship & Mitigation Fund
Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment is pleased to announce the opportunity to apply to the Fall 2017 Puget Sound Stewardship & Mitigation Fund. In 2017, the Fund will accept proposals from groups of any size.
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, SSA Terminals, Rainier Petroleum Corporation and Louis Dreyfus Company Washington LLC. More recently we received another record settlement payment from BNSF, which involved Soundkeeper numerous other waterkeepers and the Sierra Club.
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, close to $3 million in grants have been awarded.
