In an effort to support land trusts and conservation partners, The Nature Conservancy has launched a new grant program across Northern Appalachian states, and will provide opportunities in Connecticut.
The Resilient and Connected Appalachians Grant Program is part of the larger Connectivity, Climate and
Communities Fund, which also includes the New York Climate Resilience Grant Program.
Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to other nonprofit organizations, local governments and other partners for projects that result in the permanent protection of resilient and connected lands in pivotal landscapes. These local groups know best how to address challenges and build a network of landscapes that provide benefits to people and communities.
Applications are open through February 2024.
