Many of you have reached out to Matt Kofroth or Allyson Gibson about potentially applying for a 2020 DEP Growing Greener Grant. The Lancaster Clean Waters Partners is hosting a collaborative Growing Greener pre-application meeting for all those considering applying for a 2020 Growing Greener Grant. The meeting will focus on tying local projects to the County Wide Action Plan (CAP, aka the Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP)). We are looking at having a strong, coordinated voice from Lancaster County by showing DEP we are all on the same page with common goals. We have heard from funders like NFWF and others that they appreciate this common voice/message and it definitely adds to local proposals. This meeting will also allow applicants in similar watersheds to discuss their projects with each other and look for overlaps and possible synergies within each proposal.
We invite all those applying for a Growing Greener Grant to attend this meeting Tuesday, December 3rd from 2-3:30PM at the Farm & Home Center (Room 149)
