The Community Watershed Stewardship Grant Program (CWSP) involves community groups and citizens in watershed improvement projects and leverages community resources to expand stewardship efforts. Grant recipients can use funds for native plants, supplies, equipment, room rentals, transportation, and technical assistance for community-based watershed projects in the City of Portland.

Past projects include invasive plant removal, native plantings, bioswales, ecoroofs, naturescaping, and natural area cleanup and restoration. Since 1994, CWSP has granted more than $707,000 to 167 projects.

CWSP is a partnership between the City of Portland's Environmental Services, Portland State University and Northwest Service Academy/AmeriCorps.
