Chairman's River Restoration Program

In 2002, NBC Chairman Vincent Mesolella instituted the Chairman's River Restoration Initiative with the goal to help restore the Woonasquatucket River, an American Heritage River, as a vibrant community resource. 

In 2013, the Chairman's River Restoration Initiative expanded to include support to other community organizations who would like to pursue their own Earth Day River and Lake Cleanups, restoration or beautification projects in the form of grants ranging from $250 up to $1000. In 2013, grantees galvanized over 2000 volunteers to make a difference for clean water in their communities.

The goal of the NBC 2015 Earth Day River Cleanup Grant Program is to continue on the previous years' successes and emphasize the importance of Earth Day 2015, the value of the environment, and provide assistance to organizations improving the quality of life in their communities.

Applications for the 2015 program are now available. Click here for a downloadable copy (PDF). The application deadline is February 13, 2015.
