Grants to Delaware County, Indiana nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that aim to preserve and protect important conservation and recreation areas. Applicants must contact the funding source to discuss their project proposal and the application process.
Funding is intended to preserve and protect important conservation and recreation areas throughout Delaware County or those owned by Delaware County organizations by matching donations of land or dollars. Property acquired with this fund will become part of the public trust to ensure that the land is protected for future generations of Hoosiers to use and enjoy. Acquisition of property for conservation is the only project type eligible for funding through the grant program. All projects will be scored and ranked according to specific criteria outlined in the application materials.
