New streamlined online application process
TORONTO, Nov. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - RBC Blue Water Project today announced
that expressions of interest for Leadership Grants and Community Action
Grant applications for 2014 are now being accepted.
Since most of the world's population now lives in urban centres,
increasing the strain on water resources in these regions, the RBC Blue
Water Project will continue to focus its support for initiatives that
help protect and preserve water in towns, cities and urbanized areas.
The urban water focus applies to both Community Action Grants ($1,000 to
$10,000) and Leadership Grants ($10,001 to $100,000). Organizations
with projects in any of the countries and regions in which RBC is
located, including Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, the
British Isles, and Asia Pacific may qualify for funding.
RBC has also streamlined the process for grant applications. For the
first time, RBC will ask interested organizations to submit their full
application and forms online.
Expressions of interest for RBC Blue Water Project 2014 Leadership
Grants are being accepted until December 20, 2013. Applications for
Community Action Grants are also available online and due on February
