Lancaster County faces many unique environmental challenges simultaneously: our air quality is poor, our waterways are notorious for polluting the Chesapeake Bay, our tree cover is sparse, we need to save the bits of natural land that remain, and the unpredictability of our future climate threatens our agriculture. We are looking for the best ideas focused on things like land conservation, renewable energy, adaptation to climate change, biodiversity, and environmental education.
We will accept applications at three levels:
Level 1 – Projects asking for $5,000-$14,999
Level 2 – Projects asking for $15,000-$49,999
Level 3 – Projects asking for $50,000 – $100,000. For large projects, we ask for collaboration between two or more organizations. One would be a 501(c)(3) community benefit organization, and the other could be a CBO, a for-profit entity, or a municipal entity.
This application will open on June 3rd
