Embrace-A-Stream (EAS) is the flagship grant program for funding TU's grassroots conservation efforts. Since its inception in 1975, EAS has funded over 1,000 individual projects for a total of more than $4.2 million in direct cash grants. Local TU chapters and councils contributed an additional $13 million in cash and in-kind services to EAS funded projects for a total investment of more than $17 million. In 2013, EAS funded 22 projects in 15 states.
The application period for EAS grants is in the fall, with the deadline for notifying regional EAS representatives coming in November, and the final deadline in December. Chapters and councils are asked to submit proposals for conservation projects that best address the needs of native wild trout following TU's protect, reconnect, restore and sustain conservation model.
