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.
