Grants from the Coordinated Natural Resources Conservation Grant Fund are available for projects that show a natural resource conservation benefit to the state. Any organized conservation district within the state may make an application to the State Conservation Commission.
These grants are competitive in nature and limited funding is available.
This application must be on an approved application form, or follow the format of the approved form. Grants are awarded two times during a calendar year — Spring and Fall. DANR Resource Conservation and Forestry Division must receive the applications no later than March 1 for the Spring award cycle or October 1 for the Fall award cycle.
The following projects have received funding under this grant program. This is not a complete list of past or currently funded projects, nor is it intended to stifle the creativity of natural resource managers in identifying alternative measures to protect the states' natural resources.
Most, if not all, of the above grant projects include an information/education element.
