WeConservePA: DCNR Posts 3 Videos To Help Applicants Apply For Conservation Grants, Including Special Fall Grant Round, Watershed Forestry Grants

DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation recently published three tutorial videos that will help Pennsylvanians apply for and manage DCNR grants, including the special Fall Grant Round.

The three videos include:

-- An overview of DCNR’s special fall grant round with general information, project types, and tips for answering application questions.

-- An introduction to DCNR’s new Community and Watershed Forestry grants, which can fund riparian buffer planting, lawn-to-meadow conversion, and community tree planting.

-- A Grants Customer Service Portal walkthrough for awarded grants, ideal for those who just received grants through DCNR’s record-setting spring grant round.

All three videos are available on DCNR’s YouTube webpage.

Special Fall Grant Round Open

The Community Conservation Partnership special fall grant opportunity will highlight helping underserved communities, closing trail gaps, supporting an invigorated focus on the outdoor recreation sector, and planting trees along streams and in communities.

The deadline for applications is October 27.

For the supplemental fall grant round there is a lower match requirement for municipalities with populations under 5,000 people.

For these communities, match is only 20 percent of the grant amount with no cap on project size. This lower match requirement makes the fall funding round an ideal opportunity for smaller municipalities to apply for grants.

The special fall funding round is also an ideal time to apply for tree planting, lawn conversion, and streamside buffer grants.

The round includes more than $8 million in Keystone Tree Fund money and other funds to support watershed and community forestry practices.

For more information on the fall grant round or to apply, visit DCNR’s Grants Customer Service Portal webpage.
