Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, municipalities, counties, and conservation districts to develop plans for the protection of local streams. Funding is intended to ensure that productive, naturally occurring fisheries have healthy and sustainable ecosystems. The objective of these plans is to identify potential problems and opportunities for stream conservation. They often lead to more detailed watershed studies or projects, ultimately improving the health of coldwater ecosystems.

This grant provides funding to:

  • Gather existing data about coldwater ecosystems;
  • Identify potential impacts, threats, problems and opportunities affecting coldwater streams;
  • Formulate a plan of action for proposed conservation and protection strategies; and
  • Build community awareness and support for the conservation of our coldwater streams. 

Proposals that meet the following criteria will be given priority:

  • Project will occur in a watershed that contains streams with naturally reproducing trout populations. The list of streams containing naturally reproducing trout can be found at: http://fishandboat.com/trout_repro.htm
  • Project will occur in a watershed listed as special protection waters within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Chapter 93 or have the potential to be upgraded. This information can be found at: http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/025/chapter93/chap93toc.html
  • Streams and other water bodies in project area are generally open to the public for recreational activities including angling;
  • Project demonstrates significant partnerships, volunteer involvement, and promotes opportunities for citizen science and engagement;
  • Local watershed organizations, TU chapters, county conservation districts or academic institutions (rather than consulting firms) take the leading role in the implementation of the project; and
  • Proposed project demonstrates benefits to coldwater fish species as well as to the local community’s economic, recreational, aesthetic characteristics or objectives.
