Grants program helps leverage funds that help better community

As we close-out our 20th year working for clean water and healthy salmon around the Cook Inlet watershed, Cook Inletkeeper would like to thank the City of Homer Grants Program, administered by the Homer Foundation, for supporting local nonprofit organizations.

Through the grants program, Inletkeeper supports hundreds of people each year through our work on electronics recycling, stream monitoring, clean boating outreach, safe drinking water testing and now a new local foods initiative.

As local budgets increasingly feel the pinch of reduced revenues, it’s important to recognize that Homer grants program funding has a strong multiplier effect in our community, and we leverage these funds to bring even more resources into the Homer economy.

Over the past 20 years, Inletkeeper has driven more than $12 million into the local economy, and with support from the Homer grants program, we’ll keep doing our part to ensure Homer remains a world-class community.

 Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.
