Priorities

Priority will be given to projects that will benefit most or will be nearest completion with a grant from this program. This includes if the grant will:
Pay a significant portion of the purchase price
Help secure other funds (such as through matching grants)
Complete a fundraising campaign, or serve as an initial gift to kick off the campaign.
Additional priority will be given to projects that:
Benefit communities and the economy, including but not limited to:
Protecting and providing access to cultural resources and other resources valued by community members
Supporting agriculture, fisheries, and working forests
Creating or increasing outdoor recreation opportunities
Address climate change by:
Helping communities prepare for and respond to climate change
Reducing the impact of climate change on the communities and people who are most affected
Conserve critical habitat and sensitive ecological areas.
The grant committee will also adjust its final decisions to support a variety of types of projects and to ensure geographic diversity.
Funding Information

Grant awards will range in size up to a maximum of $50,000 for the purchase of land or conservation easements. Up to five grants will be awarded annually.
Understanding that many land and easement acquisitions may take more than 12 months to complete, completion of the grant report may be extended beyond this timeframe. However, organizations may not apply for another grant until the project is complete and a report has been submitted.
