Conservation Grants

The CHNEP provides Conservation Grants to support portions of larger projects that implement our Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP).  We require at least a 50% match of our funds.  Preference will be given to projects in communities that have been historically underserved by CHNEP grants. As of 2001, Micro-grants have been offered to help establish and maintain environmental education efforts and further partnerships to help implement the CCMP. We encourage requests for funding in the $500 to $3,000 range. This is a cost reimbursement grant. 

   Spring Deadline is April 1, 2020 for June 2020 award notice

Please read the following restrictions carefully. The CHNEP does NOT fund:

  • Events or services for which there is an admission fee or charge; CHNEP will consider providing support for scholarships to allow participation by those who would not otherwise be able to,

  • Projects that personally benefit the Applicant,
