Water company launches Water and Environment Grant Program


Indiana American Water has announced 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 American Water’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, according to a news release from the company.

“For more than 135 years, being a good neighbor and giving back to our partner communities is a core part of who we are as a company,” Indiana American Water President Matt Prine said. “Through this grant program, our team is continuing to demonstrate our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability to provide a brighter future for the communities we serve across the state.”

The foundation invites community partners to apply for grants 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 Indiana 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 positively benefit the communities where American Water and its employees live and work.
