If you are an educator who has always wanted to develop a water catchment and conservation program at your school, you have until April 30 to apply for a grant of up to $1,000 to get your program started or to keep your program going. The grants are offered by the Hill Country Alliance and funded through the sale of artistic rain barrels that are auctioned off during the annual Rainwater Revival.
Grants are open to public and private elementary, middle and high schools throughout the 17-county Hill Country region. Applications are due by April 30; winners will be selected in May, allowing schools to start their programs during the 2014 fall semester.
The Hill Country Alliance is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building awareness and support for preserving the natural resources and heritage of the Texas Hill Country. For information about the application process and a list of eligible counties, visit www.rainwaterrevival.com.
