Grants & Assistance
We offer grants and technical assistance to individuals, communities, and organizations to help support river stewardship:
- Riparian Conservation Grants assist with up-front costs leading to long-term protection of land along the river.
- Community Grants are available to each of the ten Wild & Scenic communities and conservation partners to support river conservation efforts. Examples include riverfront road and bridge projects, improvement of fish habitat, water quality assessment, plant and wildlife inventories.
- We review and provide technical assistance to projects along the river under “Section 7” of the National Wild & Scenic Rivers Act to be sure they do not harm the values for which a river was designated. We encourage project proponents to contact us early in their project planning for assistance and support in developing their project.
- We often provide technical assistance and support to individuals, towns and organizations for other river-related questions and projects.
