Tennessee American Water Announces Launch of American Water Charitable Foundation 2024 Water and Environment Grant Program

Tennessee American Water is delighted to announce the launch of the American Water Charitable Foundation 2024 Water and Environment Grant Program. To streamline the grant experience for its community partners, the Foundation has combined the state’s former Environmental Grant Program with its Water and Environment Grant Program. This strategic integration will strengthen the Foundation’s charitable focus and impact across American Water’s footprint.

“We believe that everyone plays a role in protecting our most precious natural resource, water,” said Grant Evitts, President of Tennessee American Water. “Strengthening our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship supports our reach to organizations making a positive difference and bringing along the community to be a part of watershed conservation.”

The grant application is currently open, and the Foundation invites community partners to apply for projects that promote clean water, conservation, environmental education, climate variability, and water-based recreation projects. Applications will be accepted from organizations served by American Water and located in the following states, in addition to its Military Service locations: California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

“The American Water Charitable Foundation is proud to work collaboratively with Tennessee American Water and launch the Water and Environment Grant Program, supporting impactful initiatives and programs across the nation,” said Carrie Williams, President of the American Water Charitable Foundation. “Our charitable focus to Keep Communities Flowing empowers communities to learn how every drop counts while engaging local organizations on the importance of protecting this vital resource.”

The Foundation supports three pillars of giving – Water, People, and Communities. Since 2012, the American Water Charitable Foundation has invested $15.5 million in funding through grants and matching gifts that benefit the communities where American Water and its employees live and work.
