Mini-grant Program

Thank you for your interest in Sweetwater Authority’s mini-grants. As educators continue to adapt to the new challenges brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, we remain committed to helping bring water-related curriculum to students in new, creative ways. Funding for the 2020-21 school year will become available later this fall. If you would like to add your name to the wait list, please email

Mini-grants support and enhance a variety of water-related curriculum and education opportunities by helping offset program/material costs. Educators are encouraged to seek creative and innovative uses for mini-grant funds that promote student understanding of water or the water industry.
