Inclusion and diversity are a top priority at West Virginia American Water. That’s why we are excited to present our pilot Inclusion and Diversity Grant Program! 

West Virginia American Water’s Inclusion and Diversity Grant program will provide financial assistance to organizations seeking to develop and implement programs, training or community-related projects that aim to promote and foster inclusion and diversity in the community. The maximum grant amount is $2,500.
