The Merrimack Conservation Partnership (MCP) today released a request for proposals for its 2018 grant programs:
- Land Conservation Grant Program, which funds transaction-related expenses on land conservation projects in the lower Merrimack Valley watershed of southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts. The program underwrites transaction costs—appraisals, surveys, title research, staff time, etc.—on conservation transactions that protect land identified as a priority in the Merrimack Valley Regional Conservation Plan (2014). The MCP has $100,000 to re-grant in 2018 for this grant program.
- Environmental Science, Education and Outreach Grant Program, which provides funding for environmental science, education and outreach activities related directly to the Merrimack River or its watershed. Funds can be used for activities such as Youth or public environmental educational activities, development of outreach & educational materials, river cleanups, water quality testing & monitoring activities, and other related activities. The MCP has $15,000 to re-grant in 2018 for this grant program.
