About the Program

The primary focus of the Community Partnering Program (CPP) is sponsorship of water conservation and water-use efficiency programs and activities. Applications must be submitted 30 days prior to the start date of the event or program.

Metropolitan created the Community Partnering Program in 1999. It provides sponsorships for community-based organizations including nonprofit groups, professional associations, educational institutions and public agencies.

Requests for a maximum $2,000 award will be reviewed year-round and funds are awarded throughout the year. Funds are limited, however, and may be depleted prior to the ending of this fiscal year (June 30).  

Applications should promote discussion and educational activities for regional water conservation and water-use efficiency issues. Metropolitan provides support for community water awareness programs, water-related education outreach programs, and public policy water conferences.

Program Goals
  • Focus Metropolitan's community participation around regional water policy issues.

  • Clearly communicate regional water policy issues to key constituent groups.

  • Provide opportunities for participation and collaboration with Metropolitan's member agencies.
