SIGNATURE PROGRAM – BUILDING BETTER COMMUNITIES

american water charitable foundation & NRPA_logo

The Building Better Communities initiative helps communities served by American Water enhance or create public park spaces that encourage the community to engage in water, nature-inspired play, environmental education, and water-based recreation. During the last eight years, through our partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the American Water Charitable Foundation (AWCF) has awarded $3.3 million to 20 communities served by American Water.
