Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program grants
Part of the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund is available each year in the form of grants to local units of government and nonprofit conservation organizations. These grants help fund land acquisition and recreational development statewide. Stewardship grant partners have been essential to the success of the Stewardship Program.
Applicants are advised that Stewardship grant awards will be subject to the availability of funds and any procedural changes that may result from the forthcoming state budget. That biennial state budget is in process and will likely be finalized sometime this summer.
