Federal Grant Series for Virginia Land Conservation

There is a once-in-a-generation level of federal funding for land and water programs.  But federal grants can be overwhelming even for well-established organizations with skilled grant writers.  Should your organization consider applying or being a partner in a grant application?

Virginia’s United Land Trusts will host agency and nonprofit speakers to provide an overview of federal grant programs most relevant to land conservation.  Applying, receiving, and managing a federal grant is a 2-5 year proposition.  What factors should your organization consider before applying?  What are some of the ingredients for success?

VaULT’s role will be a convener to make sure Virginia’s conservation community has the structure, network, and access to experts to bring in as much federal funding to Virginia as possible.  *VaULT will not be writing grants.
