PA Lake Management Society Accepting Applications For Project Mini-Grants

Pennsylvania Lake Management Society (PALMS), with funding from the Department of Environmental Protection, is pleased to offer mini-grants to county and state agencies, municipalities, nonprofits, and landowners to address lake-related issues of critically eroded shorelines, excess nutrient loading, and/or aquatic invasive species that degrade the quality of lakes in the Commonwealth. 

The deadline for applications is January 28.

Through this program, we are offering a limited number of mini-grants on a competitive basis of up to $24,000 to correct identified lake problems such as stabilize shorelines, establish riparian buffers, reduce nutrients, and control invasive species. 

To be considered for funding, the application must demonstrate that the project can be fully implemented and all paperwork submitted for reimbursement by October 1, 2023. 

Special consideration will be given to lakes located in a watershed with an approved TMDL and/or are listed on the Commonwealth’s 303(d) list of impaired waters. 

Projects that maximize funding toward implementation costs (i.e., not administrative costs) will receive high priority in award decisions.

It is a requirement to contact a PALMS Board Member to discuss your project idea prior to completing and submitting your application.
