Grants

The Clean Water Fund

Clean water is a priority for partners across all of Lancaster County, especially since over half of our streams and much of our groundwater are unhealthy. A collaborative group of partners are ready to work across the landscape on restoration projects in priority places that make sense and make a difference in our water quality. This fund will enable local partners to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of those projects using technology, cultural sensitivity, and science-based practices that will get our streams to clean and clear in a generation. 

This fund offers two grant opportunities. Both grant opportunities require 1:1 matching funds. Please see the information sheet below for more details.

Community Conservation Grants of $2,500 – $5,000 are intended to stimulate smaller, implementable projects that are lead by locally based conservation organizations, municipalities and community groups. Apply online by July 26.

Water Quality Impact Grants of $10,000-50,000 are intended to support large scale, high priority restoration projects that create a measurable impact on water quality. Please contact Allyson Gibson, Project Advisor, at agibson@lancastercleanwaterpartners.com to indicate your interest in applying.
