The Community Grants Program was initiated in 2006 by the RSC and the 2016 grant announcement and application is now available! The purpose of the grant program is to support town efforts that help to protect and enhance river resources, and to strengthen relationships between the RSC and municipal entities which are on the front lines in protecting these resources. Any municipal entity (conservation commissions, historical commissions, libraries, schools, recreation departments, public works, etc.) is eligible, as well as community-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. These include local land trusts, garden clubs, art associations, churches, watershed and neighborhood groups.
In 2016-2017, grants of up to $10,000 will be made through an application process, with the first round being reviewed as of November 11th. Take a look!Learn more here
