(GlobeNewswire) - The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced 65 grant awards totaling $2.5 million to restore wildlife habitat and urban waters in 27 states and the District of Columbia. Grantees have committed an additional $5.2 million in local project support, generating a total conservation investment of more than $7.6 million.

The grants, awarded through the foundations Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Program, will support projects that develop community stewardship of natural resources and address water quality issues in priority watersheds across the country.

The 2017 grant winners were selected from a highly competitive pool of more than 250 applications. The projects that earned grant awards involve a high level of partnership between local government agencies, elected officials, community groups, businesses, schools and environmental organizations.

A full list of 2017 projects is available here.

These community-led projects will engage thousands of volunteers, students and local residents in the restoration of wetlands, streams and coastal habitats across the nation, said Jeff Trandahl, executive director and CEO of NFWF. The critical work done by our grantees will build on a long history of conservation success made possible by the public- and private-sector partners supporting the Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Program.

Support for the 2017 Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Program is provided by the Wildlife Habitat Council, and major funding by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, FedEx and Southern Company.

Since 1999, the Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Program has supported more than 885 projects, with more than $10.7 million in federal funds, $9.3 million in private and corporate contributions, and $72.2 million in matching funds at the local level.

These grants are providing communities with the funds they need to improve water quality, which will allow local businesses to grow and ensure families have safe places to play and enjoy nature, said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

Through our collaboration with the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, FedEx team members are able to work directly with non-profits to create long-lasting environmental and social improvements in the communities they live and work, said Mitch Jackson, FedExs vice president for environmental affairs and sustainability. When we combine our expertise, we can help more people thrive, more communities flourish and more businesses prosper.

Southern Company is proud to continue our long-standing commitment to natural resource conservation and stewardship through the Five Star and Urban Waters Program, said Southern Company Environmental and System Planning Vice President Jeff Burleson. By preserving and protecting our wetlands and streams, we are giving back to the customers and communities we are privileged to serve.

By partnering together with NFWF, private partners and other Federal agencies, the Forest Service is proud to help communities accomplish their restoration goals. We are committed to sustaining our nations forests and grasslands through partnerships that engage people directly in the stewardship of their natural resources, said Victoria Christiansen, deputy chief of state and private forestry for the U.S. Forest Service.

Together with our partners, the Fish and Wildlife Service provides new chances for people who live in some of Americas biggest cities to experience nature close to their own communities, said National Wildlife Refuge System Chief Cynthia Martinez. These grants are critical to inspiring the next generation to become the natural resource stewards of tomorrow."
