The Pennsylvania Lake Management Society, with funding from the Department of Environmental Protection, is now accepting applications for mini-grants to address lake-related issues of critically eroded shorelines, excess nutrient loading, and/or aquatic invasive species that degrade the quality of lakes across Pennsylvania.
The deadline for applications is August 17.
Eligible applicants include county and state agencies, municipalities, nonprofits, and landowners. To be considered for funding, the application must demonstrate that the project can be fully implemented and all paperwork submitted for reimbursement by November 1, 2019.
Special consideration will be given to lakes located in a watershed with an approved TMDL and/or are listed on the Commonwealth’s 303(d) list of impaired waters.
Projects that maximize funding toward implementation costs (i.e., not administrative costs) will receive high priority in award decisions.
A limited number of mini-grants will be awarded on a competitive basis up to $24,000.
