Coldwater Heritage Partnership Now Accepting Applications For 2022 Coldwater Conservation Grants

Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited is pleased to announce applications are now being accepted for Round 27 of the Coldwater Heritage Partnership’s Coldwater Conservation Grant Program.  The deadline is March 4.

Trout Unlimited chapters, watershed associations, conservation districts, conservancies, and municipalities are among those eligible to apply.

Proposals for planning grants up to $7,500 and implementation grants up to $10,000 will be accepted. 

“This year we are pleased to announce that maximum grant amounts have been increased for both planning and implementation projects,” said Rachel Kester, Program Director for the Coldwater Heritage Partnership. “With prices of goods and services continuing to rise, this should help ensure that organizations are able to continue their important work to conserve coldwater resources across the Commonwealth.”

CHP grants are made possible with financial assistance from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources through a Community Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2) grant administered by the Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, and through funding from the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds

The Coldwater Heritage Partnership is a collaboration between PATU, DCNR, the Fish and Boat Commission, and the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds. 

Additional information, along with the grant application form, can be found on the Coldwater Heritage Partnership website. 

Website users can view an interactive map and searchable list of plans and projects that will aid grantees in locating existing plans and projects and identifying potential new projects in their watershed of interest. 

Applicants are asked to contact CHP Program Director, Rachel Kester, to discuss potential projects prior to applying. She can be reached at 814-359-5233 or by email at
