ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced nearly $13 million in grants to support the restoration and conservation of the Chesapeake Bay watershed in six states and the District of Columbia.

The projects supported by the grants will support methods to improve waterways, restore habitats and strengthen iconic species in Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

The funds will engage farmers and agricultural producers, homeowners, churches, businesses and municipalities in on-the-ground restoration that supports the quality of life in their communities, improving local waterways and, ultimately, the health of the Bay.
