US Water Prize
Healthy Community Services helps alleviate flooding in New Orleans with green infrastructure projects built by local residents. Jourdan Imani Keith of Seattle uses verse to inspire and educate people about drinking water sources.
The two are among this year’s recipients of the annual US Water Prize from the nonprofit US Water Alliance. Six others also were chosen for the honor, which recognizes individuals and organizations “driving innovation in the water sector and imagining new possibilities in water.”
Healthy Community Services was named in the Outstanding Nonprofit Organization category for its Water Wise 7th Ward project.
