The United States Department of Agriculture has $500,000 available in grants for proposed conservation projects in Colorado.
Individual applications will be awarded through a statewide competitive grants process for improving conservation practices in Colorado. Applications will be accepted from eligible entities, including federally-recognized Indian Tribes, state and local governments, non-governmental organizations, and individuals for competitive consideration of grant awards for single or multi-year projects, not to exceed three years. Grants under the Colorado state component will not exceed $75,000.
"These grants provide an excellent opportunity to demonstrate new conservation technologies that will address one or more of the six priority natural resource concern areas in Colorado. The focus for 2011 will be Atmospheric Resources, Grazing Land, Forest Health, Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy Wetlands and Wildlife Habitat," said John Knapp, Area Conservationist, La Junta, Colo.
Applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. on April 1, 2011. Click here for more information.
