On March 11, the PA Association of Conservation Districts awarded 29 conservation districts $67,000 to fund 41 non point source pollution prevention education mini-grants.
“The projects funded through this mini-grant program will reach thousands of Pennsylvania’s citizens. Conservation districts will educate a variety of audiences on actions they can take every day to make a difference for future generations,” said Brenda Shambaugh, Executive Director for the PA Association of Conservation Districts. 
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.
