How to Apply California Watershed Protection Fund

1) SUBMIT LETTER OF INQUIRY

All interested applicants must submit a letter of inquiry as an initial step. This letter allows the Rose Foundation to determine if the proposal appears to be a good fit for the fund. Please remember, this grants fund has twin “bull’s eyes”, to benefit underserved, vulnerable, or otherwise disadvantaged community benefit and to improve water quality. To advance in the process, successful applicants must hit both bull’s eyes.

Please follow these steps to submit your Letter of Inquiry.

a) Check Eligibility: Please check all eligibility requirements before starting the application.
