The Lancaster Clean Water Fund is a grant source that is intended to accelerate clean water conservation in Lancaster County. Both grant funds are open to community non-profits and municipalities to fund high priority, high impact nutrient and sediments reduction projects.
Community Grant Fund | $2,500-$5,000 | Projects need to have a focus on streambank stabilization, riparian forest buffers, community tree plantings, green infrastructure, and/or environmental education while prioritizing collaboration with new partners.
Water Quality Impact | $10,000-$50,000 | These grants are intended to support large-scale, high priority restoration projects that create a measurable and positive impact on water quality. Projects could include design and implementation of agricultural conservation practices, stormwater practices, riparian buffer implementation, and ecological restoration (stream, wetland, or floodplain restoration).
