Duke Energy offers grants through the Habitat Enhancement Program to qualifying government agencies and nonprofits that want to enhance, create and protect fish and wildlife habitats along the Catawba-Wateree River and its tributaries in the Carolinas.
The Habitat Enhancement Program is a cooperative effort by Duke Energy, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, funded from a fee charged to individuals and residential marina developers seeking permits to build piers in the Catawba-Wateree lakes. The Foundation for the Carolinas administers the funds.
The application period is May 1 to June 31, annually
