The William Penn Foundation helped launch the Delaware River Restoration Fund in 2013 to help community-based nonprofits and government agencies work together to clean up and restore polluted waters and improve habitat in the Delaware River watershed. The Fund will award at least $2 million per year in competitive grants, geographically focused on three priority strategies: stewardship of working lands; restoration of wetlands, floodplains and stream corridors; and promoting adoption of green infrastructure in urban/suburban landscapes.
