Today we have two more great grant opportunities to share with you. Both of these are regional opportunities for small grants to fund heritage programs. The eligible projects for each opportunity, however, include a lot of the kinds of projects typically done in watershed protection and education. One key to successfully funding your projects is to look for unexpected funding sources. This might be the chance you’ve been waiting for.
The Lumber Heritage Region of Pennsylvania, based in the PA Wilds part of the state, is accepting applications for their 2012 mini-grant program. Eligible projects include implementation of elements of a watershed management plan, among other things. Click here for more details.
The Endless Mountains Heritage Region in Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties also has opened their 2012 mini-grant cycle. This program has more specific priorities, but there still may be room within them for your watershed project. Check out their site to see if your project qualifies.
