The PA Association of Conservation Districts recently awarded more than $52,000 for 28 projects in 24 counties through the Nonpoint Source Pollution Prevention Mini Grant Program.
The projects promote water pollution prevention activities and will take place over the next 13 months.
“Conservation districts are in a unique position to identify the educational needs in their local communities and meet those needs through this program. These projects range in topic from grazing to golf course management to stormwater,” said Shannon Wehinger, Director of Communications & Education for the PA Association of Conservation Districts. “We thank the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for the opportunity given to conservation districts to address local priorities.”
Funding for the grants, up to $2,000 each, is provided through the Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
