PA Assn. Of Conservation Districts Accepting Applications For Multifunctional Riparian Buffer Grants From Conservation Districts

PA Association of Conservation Districts is now accepting applications from county conservation districts for Multifunctional Riparian Buffer Grants.  The deadline for applications is December 31

The implementation of these grants will help the Commonwealth achieve its goal of planting 95,000 acres of riparian buffers by 2025.

Pennsylvania’s conservation districts are encouraged to apply for funding to install multifunctional buffers in conjunction with landowners. This grant is first come first served.  

To date, PACD has awarded $311,822 in sub-grants to 16 conservation districts covering 63.95 acres of multi-functional riparian buffers.
