Watershed Implementation Grants

The DeKalb County Community Foundation is committed to watershed planning in DeKalb County, IL. Through the CommunityWorks Land Use initiative, we provide reliable tools and resources that DeKalb County decision makers use to inform land use decisions and maintain, manage, and protect water resources through a watershed approach. The Community Foundation's primary role is to coordinate outreach opportunities within the community and provide grants when applicable for implementation plans.
