• MET Overview

    Since 1988, the Trust has dispensed over $17 million through nearly 650 grants to organizations which have in turn made a remarkable impact on protecting and enhancing the state's water resources.
  • MET Grant Programs

    The Massachusetts Environmental Trust is one of the state's largest sources of funding for water quality initiatives. Our goals are to improve and safeguard the quality of the waterways throughout the Commonwealth. We fund nonprofit organizations, municipalities, scientists and educational institutions
  • Environmental License Plates

    The special environmental license plates are the only specialty plates sold in Massachusetts that exclusively fund environmental programs. The Right Whale & Roseate Terns, the Leaping Brook Trout, and the Blackstone Valley Mill plates represent the diversity of Massachusetts ecosystems. From the coasts and estuaries to the inland streams to the urban rivers, every person in Massachusetts feels the impact when waters are degraded. The plates are available from the Registry of Motor Vehicles.
