As part of its 2021 Power of the Partnership Celebration, the
South Mountain Partnership announced this year's recipients of four Mini-Grants designed to support and sustain the South Mountain Landscape’s natural, recreational and cultural resources.

The South Mountain Landscape region includes all or parts of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, and York counties.

This year’s awardees are:

Funding for the Mini-Grants is provided by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources through the Environmental Stewardship Fund.

In the last 12 years, over 65 projects have been completed through the Mini-Grant Program-- just over $490,000 in grants have been awarded: leveraging more than $1,000,000 in matching funds.
