KEC’s “Legacy for the Environment” grant is awarded at the end of every year. Funding varies, but typically several applicants receive between $500 and $1,000.  The RFP for the  2018 grants were posted in October 2018.

KEC is seeking proposals from persons or organizations with ideas for improving the environment in Portage County.  Areas of consideration will include, but are not limited to, environmental education, storm water management, the mitigation of stream and river degradation, the protection of other surface and groundwater resources, enhancement of alternative energy usage, and/or the creation of sustainable communities. We also welcome other areas of consideration that would improve air or water quality, natural beauty, and environmental awareness in Portage County.
