Small Grant Program DescriptionThe Reservoir Fisheries Habitat Partnership (RFHP) and the Friends of Reservoirs foundation (FOR) provide an annual small grants program available exclusively to Friends of Reservoirs member organizations. FOR membership dues are used solely to fund this program. As membership in FOR expands, we will increase the number of projects funded and/or increase the dollar value of the grants. FOR will be awarding three-$1000 grants for 2020. Deadline to submit an proposal is August 15, 2020.
