Susquehanna Riverlands Mini-Grants

ABOUT SUSQUEHANNA RIVERLANDS MINI-GRANTS 

 

The Susquehanna Riverlands Mini-Grant Program provides targeted funding opportunities in the form of small competitive grants, ranging from $2,500 to $25,000, towards projects that advance the mission of the Susquehanna Riverlands Conservation Landscape and focus on the following areas: (1) habitat and trail connectivity, (2) ecosystem health, (3) sustainable public access to the Susquehanna River and its surrounding natural lands, and (4) community partnership and collaboration. Projects that can demonstrate the greatest benefit and overlap between two or more of these areas are more likely to be funded. Mini-grant projects that are directly aligned with the mission and goals of the strategic plan will be given the most weight in the project ranking and evaluation process, however projects that are aligned with the previous goals of the Susquehanna Riverlands (including: protection, promotion, or building the region’s assets, including its: cultural, heritage / cultural resources, recreation, and natural resources / ecology) may be considered for the 2020 mini-grant cycle.
