Central Arizona Project (CAP) is proud to contribute to programs and projects which further understanding and engagement in the important water issues facing Arizona communities and our region. Twice a year (in December and June), CAP recognizes projects that focus on Colorado River water, enhance alternative water usage, increase environmental awareness or promote water conservation. CAP's community investment program awards grants of up to a maximum of $5,000 to organizations in CAP's Maricopa, Pima and Pinal County Service Area. CAP has encouraged wise water use in our communities through the Community Investment Program since 1998.

The application deadline for CAP's Spring awards is May 1, 2010.

CAP's Contributions Committee, which includes representatives from CAP's elected Board of Directors, staff and customers, will review all applications. The Committee will release the list of grant recipients in June.
