Blue Island and Midlothian are among 7 NFWF grant recipients


On Dec. 16, 2016 Chi-Cal Rivers Fund partners announced seven projects selected to receive $1.3 million in grant funding that will improve and enhance waterways in the Chicago-Calumet region. With a focus on reducing stormwater runoff, enhancing fish and wildlife habitat, and improving public-use opportunities, this investment will support community-driven projects that benefit the people and wildlife in the region. Grant recipients will match the new grant funding with an additional $2.9 million, for a total on-the-ground impact of $4.2 million.

Administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), the fund is supported in 2016 with contributions from ArcelorMittal, Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust, The Crown Family, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, The Joyce Foundation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Forest Service. The grants announced today mark the fund’s fourth annual slate of grants, bringing the total cumulative impact of the fund over four years to $16 million. Read more.

One grant of $300,000 is for improving the Cal-Sag Trail in Blue Island.  Another grant of $150,440 is for improving green stormwater infrastructure in Midlothian.
