The 2017-2018 grant round through the Chesapeake Bay Land and Water Initiative is now open.
A partnership of the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network and the Land Trust Alliance, the Chesapeake Bay Land and Water Initiative seeks projects that will accelerate land conservation and stewardship on conserved lands to protect and restore water quality in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
Eligible organizations undertaking projects that positively impact water quality and meet the stated goals and interests of the Initiative’s grantmaking program are invited to submit letters of inquiry (LOIs). Funding requests of $10,000-30,000 will be considered, and approximately $180,000 will be available in this second year of the program. LOIs will be accepted through November 14, 2017, and successful applicants will be invited in late December 2017 to submit full proposals for consideration.
Prospective grantees are invited and encouraged to attend a conference call and webinar on Wednesday, October 11 at 10:30 am to learn more about the grantmaking program and LOI process.
If you have questions or need more information, contact Jennifer Miller Herzog, LTA’s Chesapeake program manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-580-6410.
