For the third year, DCNR is offering grants to eligible applicants for the installation of Multifunctional Riparian Forest Buffers throughout Pennsylvania. These buffers, funded by PENNVEST, provide opportunities for harvesting products such as nuts, berries, woody florals, forbs, and potentially biomass. This grant program is open to any government agency, non-governmental organization, private business, and/or Pennsylvania resident. However, all applicants must pre-qualify for eligibility, prior to submitting an application for funding. The pre-qualification process will be open July 1, 2019 to August 31, 2019.
The grant application period will be open for all pre-qualified applicants August 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019 (4 p.m.) via DCNR’s online grant application portal. Grant funding will be awarded through a competitive grant application process.
Detailed information about the program and the pre-qualification process is available on DCNR’s website.
