Connecting People & Communities Through Conservation!

Since 1975, Trout Unlimited (TU) has offered Embrace A Stream (EAS) funding to chapters and councils to support their efforts in bringing the TU coldwater conservation mission to life across the country.   

Over the last four decades, EAS has funded more than 1,100 individual projects with more than $4.6 million in direct cash grants. TU chapters and councils have leveraged those funds by contributing an additional $14 million in cash and in-kind contributions to EAS funded projects, for a total investment of nearly $19 million to restore stream habitat, improve fish passage, and protect water quality from coast to coast.

Embrace A Stream Support

EAS is a great opportunity for TU chapters or councils to apply for financial support for upcoming projects.  In addition to funding support, EAS leverages your efforts to engage more of your community while providing the opportunity to become more familiar with the grant writing process.  EAS offers a breadth of support for applicants including regional representatives, webinars, training videos and more to assist you in drafting a competitive EAS proposal.  This support can improve your current proposal but also your future fundraising efforts as you seek additional funds through foundations, corporate sponsorships and other grant opportunities.  For more information about EAS including eligibility, contacts and deadlines, visit

Thank you for your time and energy cultivating your Embrace A Stream project!  We look forward to reviewing your proposal through this online application process.
