Grants Available for Coldwater Stream Conservation

Monday October 1st, 2018
Townships that have trout streams and other coldwater ecosystems may apply for grants from the Coldwater Heritage Partnership, which provides technical assistance and funding for the evaluation, conservation, and protection of Pennsylvania’s streams. Applications are due by December 15, 2018.
• Planning grants up to $5,000 provide funding to develop a conservation plan that identifies the value of and threats to coldwater ecosystems with naturally reproducing trout. The information collected can be used as a catalyst for more comprehensive planning or watershed improvement projects.
• Implementation grants up to $8,000 fund projects that have been recommended in a complete conservation plan or report. Potential projects must enhance, conserve, or protect the coldwater stream named in the original plan.
