The Land Trust Alliance and Chesapeake Bay Funders Network have announced a new round of grants available through the Chesapeake Bay Land and Water Initiative.
A partnership of the Funders Network and the Alliance, the 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.
The Initiative invites letters of inquiry (LOIs) from eligible organizations undertaking projects that positively impact water quality and meet the stated priorities and interests of the Initiative’s grant program.

Funding requests of $10,000–30,000 will be considered. LOIs will be accepted through November 9, 2018, and successful applicants will be invited in late December 2018 to submit full proposals for consideration.
Prospective grantees are invited and encouraged to attend a conference call and webinar on Monday, October 1, at 1:00 pm to learn more about the grant program and LOI process. More information and registration is available here. We also encourage you to take a look at projects funded in our previous grant rounds in 2017 and 2018.
If you have questions or need more information after reviewing the Request for LOIs, please contact Jennifer Miller Herzog at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-580-6410.
